Controls Rules 2024: https://firstfrc.blob.core.windows.net/frc2024/Manual/2024GameManual.pdf

Img1704601245110.png

A DRIVER STATION is 1 of 3 assemblies within an ALLIANCE WALL behind which a DRIVE TEAM operates their
ROBOT. Each DRIVER STATION is made from a 3 ft. ¾ in. (~93 cm) tall diamond plate base topped with a 3 ft. 6 in. (~107 cm) tall transparent plastic sheet and a top rail. An aluminum shelf is attached to each DRIVER
STATION to support an OPERATOR CONSOLE. The shelf is 5 ft. 9 in. (~175 cm) wide and 1 ft. ¼ in. (~31 cm)
deep. There is a 4 ft. 6 in. (~137 cm) long by 2 in. (nominal) wide strip of hook-and-loop tape (“loop” side)
along the center of the support shelf that may be used to secure the OPERATOR CONSOLE to the shelf.

'

R901 *Use the specified Driver Station Software. The Driver Station Software provided by National
Instruments (install instructions found here) is the only application permitted to specify and
communicate the operating mode (i.e. AUTO/TELEOP) and operating state (Enable/Disable) to the
ROBOT. The Driver Station Software must be version 24.1 or newer.
[Teams are permitted to use a portable computing device of their choice (laptop
computer, tablet, etc.) to host the Driver Station Software while participating in
MATCHES.] 

R902 *The OPERATOR CONSOLE must have a visible display. The OPERATOR CONSOLE, the set of
COMPONENTS and MECHANISMS used by the DRIVERS and/or HUMAN PLAYERS to relay commands
to the ROBOT, must include a graphic display to present the Driver Station Software diagnostic
information. It must be positioned within the OPERATOR CONSOLE so that the screen display can be
clearly seen during inspection and in a MATCH.

R903 *Connect FMS Ethernet directly to the OPERATOR CONSOLE. Devices hosting the Driver Station
Software must only interface with the FMS via the Ethernet cable provided at the DRIVER STATION (e.g.
not through a switch). Teams may connect the FMS Ethernet cable to the device running the Driver
Station Software directly via an Ethernet pigtail, or with a single-port Ethernet converter (e.g. docking
station, USB-Ethernet converter, Thunderbolt-Ethernet converter, etc.). The Ethernet port on the
OPERATOR CONSOLE must be easily and quickly accessible.
[Teams are strongly encouraged to use pigtails on the Ethernet port used to
connect to the FMS. Such pigtails will reduce wear and tear on the device’s port
and, with proper strain relief employed, will protect the port from accidental
damage.]

R904 *OPERATOR CONSOLE physical requirements. The OPERATOR CONSOLE must not
A. be longer than 5 ft. (~152 cm),
B. be deeper than 1 ft. 2 in. (~35 cm) (excluding any items that are held or worn by the DRIVERS
during the MATCH),
C. extend more than 6 ft. 6 in. (~198 cm) above the floor, or
D. attach to the FIELD (except via the loop tape as described in Section 5.6.2 DRIVER STATIONS).
[There is a 4 ft. 6 in. (~137 cm) long by 2 in. (nominal) wide strip of hook-and-loop
tape (“loop” side) along the center of the DRIVER STATION support shelf that
should be used to secure the OPERATOR CONSOLE to the shelf. See Section
5.6.2 DRIVER STATIONS for details.
Please note that while there is no hard weight limit, OPERATOR CONSOLES that
weigh more than 30 lbs. (~13 kg.) will invite extra scrutiny as they are likely to
present unsafe circumstances.]

R905 *FIELD wireless only. Other than the system provided by the FIELD, no other form of wireless
communications shall be used to communicate to, from, or within the OPERATOR CONSOLE.
[Examples of prohibited wireless systems include, but are not limited to, active
wireless network cards and Bluetooth devices. For the case of the FIRST
Robotics Competition, a motion sensing input device (e.g. Microsoft Kinect) is
not considered wireless communication and is allowed.]

R906 *No unsafe OPERATOR CONSOLES. OPERATOR CONSOLES shall not be made using hazardous
materials, be unsafe, cause an unsafe condition, or interfere with other DRIVE TEAMS or the operation
of other ROBOTS.
