How do you learn more advanced algorithems for your robot?

I'm a new proggramer in LabVIEW and I know how to learn the basic things for my robot via the LabVIEW Examples and this website.

Is there a way to learn new algorithems for my robot?

More complex things

Thx for helping

What kinds of things do you want your robot to do?

Vision processing?

PID Control?

Controlling your shooter motor?

There are a bunch of good tutorials for these things linked off of:

If it is Vision Processing, I would strongly suggest using RoboRealm, which comes in the KoP for this year.

It has a very efficient and simple tutorial for anything from Targetting to Distance Calculating.

Here is their website:

Just click on the FIRST 2013 Competition section of the page, and it will take you to a list of tutorials for Vision Processing alone.

It also explains how to integrate your processed image into your SmartDashboard project.

Check them out.

FYI: My Team used Roborealm for vision processing with the Kinect, but you may want to think about having a computer ONBOARD so that your cRIO isn't taking all that time processing as it will most definitely cause lag with your communications.

Hope this helps!
