The Robotics Programming Club is for students in 9th grade through adult. This club is intended for those individuals interested in the fundamentals needed to program robots for autonomous competition using the JAVA computer programming language. We will be examining the relationship and interaction between hardware sensors, motors, and the software. Also, we will discuss interruption processing, multitasking, memory management, and signaling as it related to digital sensors used on the **FIRST robots. The lectures will consist of the theory, considerations, problem situations and the logical flow required to control robotic devices. Registrants will need to bring their own personal laptop computer.
