ABOUT PROGRAMMING

Our robot code is 100% student written in Java. in terms of an IDE, we use Eclipse, something we have recently become fluent with in the 2018 season. A match in competition, up until the 2019 season, consists of two periods, autonomous and teleop. Our autonomous programs run automatically, with no human-robot interaction. Our teleop program is written to accommodate two joysticks and gives our student drivers complete and accurate control of our robot.​​ In 2019, the autonomous period is being replaced with a "sandstorm period," in which drive teams have the option to wither program an autonomous code, or control the robot manually using vision through cameras on the robot.
