One of our professors is interested in using Labview for FRC to control several axes of motion using VEX motors and a RoboRIO in a telescope aiming application. I'm curious about the politics involved.
Would it be usable under our Academic Research Site License? Or is this a blind alley?
I've been using Labview for projects large and small since 1992, but haven't paid much attention to FRC.
You should be able to use your research license. Though I am not sure if some of the robotics libraries are licensed specifically under the FRC license. I have accessed FRC code when mentoring teams using my own license. I know the FRC license is necessary if you are using the FRC dashboard, which I don't think you will need.
