Common Resources

Resources commonly used by the team are software packages like SolidWorks and GoogleSketch for design and LabView or WindRiver Workbench for programming.

Materials and hardware come from various suppliers, like AndyMark, ACE Hardware, and Grainger.

Electronics are supplied by a multitude of sources and are mostly supplied in the "Kit of Parts" (K.O.P) provided at the beginning of the season. These include the "brain" of the robot, the National Instruments cRIO (Legacy and cRIO II), which we program currently through National Instruments' LabView. We are looking into possibly using C++ in the future.
