Summer Training Sessions 2016
Tesla gurus are presenting JAVA training sessions using the following Modern Robotics Sensors: Touch, Color and IR
At the end of EACH session, your team will walk away with a program that you created or modified for a sensor on YOUR TEAM’s robot!!!!
Our FTA will also present lessons learned to help teams perform their best.
In order to get all of this training into 4 short days, pre-homework and homework will be required. The sessions are two weeks apart to allow for time for teams to meet and complete their homework.
4 sessions repeated twice on different sides of town (UCF and Apopka) to keep the class size small and for your driving convenience. Time for both sessions is 8:30 am - 3:30 pm.
Saturdays - session A
Sundays - session B
- FTC App SDK (you want THIS VERSION as it corrects a lot of issues in past ones) https://github.com/ftctechnh/ftc_app/tree/beta, or https://github.com/ftctechnh/ftc_app/archive/beta.zip
- Android Studio v2.1: https://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
- Java 8 JDK: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html
Each TEAM should bring a PRE-BUILT Pushbot with the following three sensors installed: TOUCH SENSOR and IR SENSORS (FRONT Center, facing forward), and the COLOR SENSOR (bottom facing the floor in the front of the robot). Teams will also need to bring their phones and gamepads to control the robot/pushbot. These sensors take time to order so please make sure you order them in time for the FIRST class session. If your team can build more than one pushbot, it is recommended that you do so, but not required. At the end of each learning presentation, students will create their own program and then take turns with their teammates to test on the team’s robot. Again, the robot/pushbot needs to be built before class so that the students can use the class and programming time to learn as much as possible rather than trying to catch up.
