Programming

Welcome to the Programming Page!

P1090915About Us

The programming team of Rocket Robotics strives to make sure the robot does what it's supposed to do. We are the reason the robot knows to fire the catapult if you press a button. We tell the robot what to do because the robot is a clump of aluminum and copper if we don't let it know what to do. Our programming team currently has three veteran members and one new member.

 

Why are we Important?

Programming tells the robot when and what to do. We use a visual programming language called LabView to program the roboRIO. The roboRIO is the "Brain" of the robot. The robots can not function without a program. The programs in FRC robots can get complicated and that is why we need to discuss with other teams about it. For example, Design and Manufacturing are able to plan out what they are planning to do regarding the robot. Then the programmers go into LabView with the concept and experiment on how to accomplish the task Design is telling us they need the robot to complete. Without Programming, the robotics team simply could not compete.

Java

Java is an "Object Oriented Programming" language that utilizes grouping and simplicity to streamline code smoothly. Java was used by Rocket Robotics until the last student that knew Java graduated back in 2014. We have since started using Java once again and plan to use it during off season and in 2018's game.
