First robot competition selects Ni compactrio as the next generation robot control system

more than 42000 students participating in the first robot competition use the Ni robot platform based on NI LabVIEW to develop advanced robot applications

April 17, 2008

first (full name forinspirationandrecognitionofscienceandtechnology) as a non-profit organization that encourages teenagers to become pioneers in science and technology, The compactrio embedded control platform of National Instruments Co., Ltd. (Ni) is selected as the robot controller of its next generation first robot competition (FRC). Starting from the 2009first season, high school students will design advanced robots on this platform. Based on compactrio, students can program their robots using nilabview graphical programming software or ansic language

compactrio platform enables high school students to experience advanced controllability and Zhuoyue performance, including 400 MHz PowerPC and FPGA based i/o. Compactrio modular i/o system provides options for connecting to a wide variety of sensors and brakes and powerful real-time visual processing to build a highly developed robot. Through the latest technologies such as wireless monitoring and simulation, students can create robots in driving control or full-automatic mode to obtain more competitive control technology and more accurate design

in the next five years to increase the activity platform, Ni will sponsor millions of dollars worth of real objects to first organization to provide compactrio system to participants. Some major technology suppliers also cooperate with Ni to provide in kind sponsorship of parts used to build compactrio control system. Leading companies in these industries include Altera, analogdevices, Boston engineering, chipx, doveelectronics, Freescale, MSI, texasinstruments, tti

, westak, WinDriver, worcesterpolytechnicinstitute and Xilinx. The support of these companies is helping Ni provide a cutting-edge embedded platform, which is equivalent to building the most advanced industrial system

"our goal is to carry out first activities in every university and change the public's concept, so that they can celebrate the outstanding performance in the field of science and engineering technology as they celebrate the sports meeting." Deankamen, the founder of first organization and chairman of Deka research and development company, said, "it is the support of partners such as Ni company that makes first4. Well cover pressure testing machine suitable for well cover tightening and zigzag strength testing, and t organization has achieved its goal."

first organization enables students to participate in it and encourages students to discover the mystery and fun of science and technology through a series of robot competitions (such as youth first LEGO League, first LEGO League, first technology challenge, and first robot competition). With the cooperation of Ni, Lego and first, a total of 150000 students participating in the first competition will have the opportunity to experience programming platform technologies from LEGO MindstormsNXT robot to nilabview. This unity of robot and software enables students to learn technologies suitable for their age in a vivid hands-on learning environment

"we choose to cooperate with first because we believe that science, technology, engineering and Mathematics (stem) will have a great impact on the birth of more scientists and engineers." rayalmgren, vice president of Ni institutional relations, said: "Add compactrio and LabVIEW software to the robot platform used in the competition. Because of their convenience and the high efficiency of nilabview graphical programming, first can also enhance the technical performance of team robots while extending the programming technology to a wider range of student groups."
