We’ve been looking for a way to download our program permanently on the robot without having to download it every single time. Our communication system is just the regular wireless system. Any help is much appreciated!
If you’re using C++, in Wind River, just go to the FIRST menu at the top and click Deploy. You’ll need to go into the Wind River settings to set your team number.
i can’t remember how but with labview there is a way to download it permanently… but if you have windriver, this is how you put code on the robot like NickE said.
If you’re using LabVIEW, you deploy from the robot project. From the project explorer window, at the bottom of the tree, there should be a deployment tab. Open that tab, and there should be an icon labeled ‘FRC Boot-Up Deployment’. Right click this and select ‘Build’. Once it’s finished building, right click and select ‘Run as Startup’. The program should run every time the robot turns on. You need to be tethered to a programming computer, though. I hope this helps.

You can do it over wireless.
