  • YouTube tutorial on Virtual Robot 2D Simulator for learning FTC Java Programming

    We've just posted a video tutorial on how to install and use our Virtual Robot 2D Simulator. It allows you to write basic LinearOpModes and test them on a virtual robot without needing actual robot hardware. It supports a simple 2-wheel bot, as well as a bot with 4 mechanum wheels. Each bot also includes a gyro, color sensor, and servo-mounted arm.

    If text looks blurry on the video, click the settings icon at the bottom of the youtube screen and set the video quality to a high-def mode. 1080p is great, 720p is OK, anything lower not too good.

    The simulator has now been updated to use a real gamepad, rather than the "virtual gamepad" that was included in the UI originally. Just plug in your gamepad before running the application.

    Also, three robot hardware configurations are now available: two wheel bot, mechanum drive, and X-drive.

    Distance sensors have been added to all four sides of each bot configuration. They only sense distance to the perimeter wall, and go out of range beyond one meter, or when the side of the bot is not nearly parallel to the wall (trying to simulate our experience with the REV 2m sensor and the plexiglass wall).

      The simulator now supports the use of both linear op modes and regular op modes; thanks to github user alan412 for this contribution!
