Programmers using up free time before the robot is done

As you may well guess, we programmers have a bit of time on our hands while we wait for the new robot to be at a programmable point, so we have been working on our to-do list. Tonight we did the following:

  • Figured out the SmartDashboard's new LiveWindow
  • Tested the functionality of the auto code generator from WPI
  • Timed the CANbus to make an educated decision about 2CAN vs. CANbus vs. PWM cables
  • Started to load C++ on an extra CRio to see if it works better than Java

That seems about it for today. In addition to that we used some of our time yesterday to make a few more CAN to Serial cables; ours were not always working properly...
