The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) has adopted the CompactRIO (cRIO) control system for advanced robotics for its 2009 season and beyond.  The cRIO from National Instruments can be programmed in LabVIEW or C.

National Instruments (NI) is dedicated to supporting engineering education and today's students at every level.  By supporting hands-on learning combined with cutting edge technology, NI works to provide a fun and engaging environment to get students excited about engineering and science.  This approach is a key piece to the puzzle to encourage students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.  Through this partnership with FIRST, products, mentors, and financial support can be provided to help nuture future engineers.

Key feature and benefits of the new Control System include:

Superior Performance

Easy to Program

Advanced Control

Rugged Design

Flexible Inputs and Outputs
