Hi Friend,
  1. Control System Software Update
  2. FIRST® Tech Challenge Dean’s List
Control System Software Update
There is a known issue with version 5.2 of the FTC control system software that prevents the reliable operation of the software with an externally connected USB webcam.  This issue primarily affects Control Hub users who use an external camera for computer vision tasks.  This problem does NOT affect teams that use the internal camera of an Android phone.
 
A detailed description of the problem, as well as a workaround to address the issue, can be found here.
