2015-16 FTC Game announcement

This year’s FTC game has been announced, and it looks quite challenging! Makes us wonder how difficult this year’s FRC challenge will be.

FTC has a new hardware and software platform this year. The new system uses Android phones as the controller, and all the robot programming is now done in Java. The Java based approach really helps build real-world programming skills, and the difficulty of this new challenge is certainly going to challenge students’ engineering skills.
