Has anyone here heard of the organization FIRST (http://www.usfirst.org) (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology)? I am on one of the many teams for their robotics competitions and I was wondering if there was anyone here who knew about it and if we could discuss some of the code used for the robots.

This shouldn't really be in the C forum, sounds more like it should be in the tech forum. Let one of the moderators move it. Seems like an interesting topic, I have nothing to say, though.

I posted it here because the robots use C. I thought it might be appropriate putting it here, but if the moderators think its better putting it in the tech forum, I'll go with it.

Yeah, usually the C forum is more appropriate for specific C questions. This is because it gets alot of activity and the clutter of discussion topics would just be too much and people wouldn't get their questions answered.

i was in the first competitions for about 2 years, i wont tell you what team i was on cause we placed pretty low. But last year a team set up a forum on some chief delphi website that allowed teams to discuss programming problems and wahtnot. I dont remember the exact link but good luck finding it

Well I googled for first robot forum, and guess what the first result (http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/portal.php) was?

I'm on team 1523, M.A.R.S. (http://www.marsbot.org) We started last year, and I'm the only guy left from last year of who worked on the programming. Thing is, we couldn't get the sensor camera for last year's competition to work; it wouldn't register the vision tetra (we made a crude one for testing) was in front of it. If anyone was on a team that managed to get the camera to work correctly, could you please tell me how?
