FRC-3215 Robot Training Punchlist

The sum total of knowledge students should collectively posses, as a team, in order to build a FIRST Robotics Challenge (FRC) robot...


The robot is an involved system with many parts. There are Mechanical, Electrical and Programming systems.

*required

Merged Concepts:

*Motors: Torque, Time, Speed, Acceleration, Power, Projectile Motion

*Motor integration

*Sensor integration

*Electronics integration


Mechanical:

*Structure support, bracing and fabrication

*Drive train, wheels, bearings, chains, belts, pulleys.

Conveyor systems

Manipulator Systems (end effectors, flippers, twisters)

Impact systems/stored energy (kickers and launchers)

Pneumatics


Electrical and programming:

*Voltages and the Power distribution board

*Motor control and the Jaguars

*CRIO/NXT

*Power Routing, wiring, soldering

*Wireless Networking

Servo motors

Sensors – breakout board,

Rotary Encoders

Photo electrics – line following, object sensing

Gyroscope

Accelerometer

Ultrasonic sensor

Touch Sensor (contact switch)

Potentiometer

Camera Vision Processing


Programming:

*Variables

*If-then

*Loops

*Case Structures

*Initialization

Hierarchy

State Machines

Sample Rate

PID control


It's a big list, but most of it can be handled with hands on training of a few building blocks...
