Task 2 - Objective 2: Create, Build, and Load Program for Benchtop Testing

Task: To create, build, load and run a basic robot program (template of your choosing) on the roboRIO benchtop setup.


The purpose of this task is to verify the ability to create and download a basic robot program from the chosen template in the assigned programming language. This will verify that the development environment are set up correctly and working properly before moving on to a more complex system. For this task you should create, build and download a basic program to the roboRIO to run at startup, then verify that you are able to communicate with and enable the program using the Driver Station.

As part of the purpose of this Beta test is to test the documentation and its ease of use, no direct links to setup instructions will be provided. Instructions for all languages are available on the Getting Started with the 2018 Control System page.
