Enable Training and Consulting Develops LabVIEW Field Controller System for FIRST Robotics Tech Challenge

“We’re long-time users of LabVIEW, and we’re excited to be helping competitors learn the many advantages this programming language has to offer,” says Ben Zimmer, Enable president. 

The new software is being used as a control system during this year’s competition.

“Ben Zimmer and his group worked with FIRST Tech  Challenge to develop a robotic control tool via LabVIEW for use by over 13,000 youths and volunteers worldwide,” says Ken Johnson, FTC director. “This was a time-critical job and had to mesh with our season kickoff—or the season would have been in jeopardy. Ben and his team worked with us to understand the challenge, develop solutions, and test those solutions. The result is a system that is more functional than we’ve had before with a better user interface and more reliable performance.”
