Tech Tip of the Week (Global) 

This week’s tech tip is here to help teams prepare for inspection at events. Aside from making sure that your robot is within the Maximum Starting Size, ensuring that your robot code can correctly pass Field Inspection, and other tasks in the Robot Inspection Checklist, teams need to make sure their robot software and hardware apps are updated to the latest and greatest versions and that their hardware is configured correctly.

There is a tool within the Driver Station App 3-dot menu called the “Self-Inspect” feature that can help teams perform a quick check to ensure their hardware and software is configured correctly. Depending on your hardware configuration, the Self-Inspect screens may be formatted differently or have different options listed, so there is a handy reference on ftc-docs that can help you understand the Self-Inspect tool. Make sure you’re ready for inspection!
