  1. Presented by: FTC 4140 Fish in the Boat

  2. Overview • How to get and install RobotC • How to connect to your robot • Download firmware • Building schematic and debugging • Resources

  3. How do I get it? • Provided by Carnegie Mellon • Version: RobotC 3.0 for Mindstorms

  4. How do I get it? • Program • Download from the website • Buy a License from the website

  5. How do I get it? 2. • Templates 1.

  6. How do I get it? • Templates • Required to work with FCS (rule RS03) • Comes with your download of RobotC

  7. Firmware • Install Firmware • Plug in the NXT to the computer • Robot  Download Firmware  Standard File (or) Last Downloaded

  8. Firmware • Select brick • Click ‘F/W download”

  9. Platform Type • Make sure to change it to “LEGO NXT + TETRIX/MATRIX’ or else your pragmas, debugging windows and programming will not work.

  10. User Type • Change it to “super user” so that you get more menu options. • This will be more useful when we get to the debugging section of this presentation 

  11. Connecting to NXT • USB • Most reliable / Least convenient • Bluetooth • Pairing / Reliability • Wi-Fi – FCS • Requires Samantha and Router w/ FCS

  12. Connecting to NXT

  13. Connecting to NXT

  14. Pragmas • What are they?

  15. Pragmas • There’s a wizard! 

  16. Pragmas What configuration are your controllers in??

  17. Debugging • RobotC provides a whole series of debugging windows (This is with your menu level set as basic)

  18. Debugging • You get more debugging windows in “super user” mode

  19. For the tournament • Samostat • Sample programs  NXT  Samantha Module • Program Chooser • Sample programs  NXT  Try Me Program Source

  20. Resources • http://www.education.rec.ri.cmu.edu/content/events/ftc/robotc/index.htm • Lessons on different concepts • Robotc.net • Official website, offers some basic lesson • chiefdelphi.com • Forum that is helpful to almost every aspect of FTC
