A view of the Archimedes field at the FIRST Championship.

Notice Team 39 is not looking at the field. As we
did in several other matches, our concentration is
focussed on the Driver station as our robot is not
functining yet again. We were plagued with comms
problems in half of our matches. We were flawless
however on the practice field. With some initial
help from field staff, they suggested a bad cable.
We verified that in fact the bot radio to cRIO
cable was intermittent and got a new one in time
for second last match on Sat. am. We still had
problmes so we got a new radio. Then in last match
on Sat. am. with the new radio, we had sluggish
driver controls and no operator controls at
all....letting down our alliance partners.
Frustrating that there is no mechnaism to test our
feild programmed robot radios.
