I was reading a FIRST E-Mail about Annual FIRST Robotics Conference and one of the abstract topic was “FRC New technology showcase” Does any one have any clues as to what this “new technology” might be? I am hoping this is not as big as the control system and field surface change!
Schedule of the Conference
Just a reminder that the sixth annual FIRST Robotics Conference, sponsored by CIA, Rolls-Royce, and WPI, will take place April 15-16, 2009 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta in conjunction with the FIRST Championship. The deadline to purchase individual and group passes at a reduced rate has been extended to April 8.
The FIRST Robotics Conference is designed for current and potential members of the FIRST Community, as well as those interested in FIRST topics, to learn more about a wide variety of technical and non-technical topics associated with FIRST, technology, engineering, outreach, education, and much more. A diverse group of speakers are lined up to share their knowledge and expertise with attendees. Anyone and everyone is welcome to attend; we really hope you’ll join us!
