  • What is Samantha?!

    Hi,

    Can anyone explain what is Samantha Module? I have seen many people saying it and am curious of finding what is it and what does it do?

    Thanks,

    The Samantha module was used in previous years with the NXTs to run matches. Each event had a WiFi network used for Samantha, and the event organizers provided the gamepads. When the match began, the Samantha module received controls over WiFi from the gamepads provided by the organizers, and used that to control the robot (in autonomous and teleop) by sending the data to the NXT brick over USB.

    It was replaced this year by the more reliable and easier-to-use WiFi direct system with the phones.
