Video of the driver station displays?

Can somebody share a video of the LED displays that are part of the field and face the driver’s station? We would like to know exactly what information our drivers will be able to see during matches.

I don’t have a video but page 33 of the manual might help you out

Like the back of the alliance station signs? I can try to take pictures today, but I can’t make definite promises.

If you could, we would really like some pictures or video if you could manage it of an entire match.

Taken of red 3. This was as close to a full match as I could get. Sorry for the low quality, I had to zoom quite a bit.

This is what I remember from being on drive team at CPR

The three driver station signs:

Pregame

  • Display “Waiting For Match…” when match has not been loaded in FMS.
  • Display Team # & “Connect PC” when match is loaded but driver station is not detected.
  • Display “Team # Move to station X” when plugged into wrong station.
  • Display Team # & “No Radio” or “No Rio” when driver station is connected but no comms.
  • Display Team # & “No Code” when no code is reported from the Rio to the FMS.

During Match

  • Display Match Timer, & “A Stop” or “E Stop” when triggered.
  • Display Match Timer, Progress towards Melody RP: “# Notes Scored/# Notes Needed”, & Amplification Timer in seconds.

Misc

  • Display break timer: “Awards Break: XX:XX”

The center timer sign:

  • Displays Match Name: “Qual XX” or “Final X” & Match Timer. Always displays previous Match Name before the next match has been loaded in the FMS.

Misc

  • Display break timer: “Awards Break: XX:XX”

There’s also a “Start DS” message when the laptop is connected but the driver station software has not yet been detected.

At ORORE, it looked like the award break timers were broken and always showing “00:00”. Hopefully resolved in an FMS update.
