Florida FIRST Robotics Competition teams are invited to tune in, as well as join in, our next ROBOTICON Infinite Recharge Live show, running this Friday, Feb. 26 at 6pm .  This week’s show looks at the Game Design Challenge in the Infinite Recharge at Home portion of this year’s competition.

We’ll be joined by FIRST alum. ROBOTICON Planning Team member and ROBOTICON CAD Challenge developer, Bryan Bautista and a couple other awesome folks to talk about approaches to the challenge, and how best to present your ideas to judges!

Tune In, Connect with Resources and Other Teams
We’ll be hosting livestream shows the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month through at least April.

Each program will feature professionals from industry and engineering, provide resources, information, contacts, and support for teams around each topic and future programs will drill down further into things like programming, CAD, documentation, interviews and more.

Additional Resources & Support

Programming Q&A – Saturday Feb. 27 -Online, at 7pm

If your team is tackling the Infinite Recharge at Home Autonomous challenges and is stuck or looking for some programming and autonomous navigation guidance, resources, and support, please join us online on Feb. 27 at 7pm for some live Q&A with FIRST Robotics Competition team 5276, the Edgar Allan Ohms and some of their mentors.

The Edgar Allan Ohms  has an exemplary team of programmers who successfully reverse engineered the FRC Field Management System over the summer, presenting to the Georgia FIRST Symposium on their now open source project.  The FMS was used during ROBOTICON Live Online, and is also operational at AMROC Fab Lab, and also available for other teams to use for their practice fields.  The team is happy to share their strong programming skills with other teams wherever possible, to help them have as successful a season as possible.
