  • Fusin Controller Legallity???

    Hey y'all, Team 11653, (Super Terrific Engineering Maniacs or STEM) here. Over in Wyoming, we've been hearing a lot about this new Fusion Controller from Modern Robotics. I looked around and did some research, and nobody seems to know if it's legal or not. Is it legal for this season? If I need to post this somewhere else, please let know, we are totally new to the forum. Thanks!


    Here's a link to the Fusion info page at Modern Robotics.com

    The Fusion Controller is definitely not legal. See <RE17> in GM1.

      Hey S.T.E.M with the caveat that the only place to get Official answers to game or robot part questions is in the Game Q&A (that answers your question about a repost) the Fusion module is definitely not legal as per the game manual. We've attached a screen cap of what we think is the most relevant rule section, but there's likely others as well.

      Good luck this season!

          As noted above the Modern Robotics Fusion Controller is not legal for FTC. A number of FTC teams are using the Fusion Controller to prototype and develop their robot and run it remotely from a device with Wi-Fi / browser as it avoids the complexity of phones, etc. which is where the idea of Fusion being legal may have come from. Teams then just switch to the Android / MRI / rev solution for competition.

            Does the Fusion controller support wireless gamepads and programming with Java / C++? If so I may be interested in using for an outreach bot...

              The Fusion does support wireless game pads, just plug the game pad dongle into a USB port. It also has a built-in "Virtual Game Pad" that can be run from a laptop, tablet, etc, and an option to stream live video from a camera connect to the Fusion back to the virtual game pad display.

              Java and C++ are not available yet but are scheduled to be available by summer 2019.
