The Modern Robotics Color Sensor may need calibration depending on its intended use. For example, a calibration that works for distinguishing illuminated red and blue beacons may not be suitable for detecting a colored piece of tape. Here you'll find an OpMode and information that can help with the calibration process.
A number of teams have experienced an error that says "OpMode stuck in loop(); Restarting robot controller app." The short answer: upgrade to version 2.62 of the FTC App SDK. To understand what's going on, we need to dive into the SDK a bit.
Over time, the FTC Engineering team updates the FTC App SDK with new features and fixes. While they document the changes in short form in the repository's readme, here are the highlights and what they mean for you.
The following is a quick overview that should help you use the Linear OpMode to program your FTC robot. We assume you’re using Android Studio to write and build your programs. Want to contribute information related to another method, or make a correction?…
If you're currently (or about to be) stuck in the process of setting up Android Studio, we can help. Need to know which SDK packages to install, or what other things to download from the internet? No problem. Here are some resources to help you get everything you need.
To download code from Android Studio normally, you have to constantly unplug the phone from the robot, plug in to the computer, and vice-versa. It gets annoying after a while, and you may find that the micro USB port on the phone starts to get loose. Check out this video for a tutorial on getting started with the Android Debug Bridge, which can allow you to download the application over wireless.
