What kind of computer is needed for a FIRST® Robotics Competition team?
Teams must have access to either a Mac or a PC with an internet connection. Computers will be used for the design process, and for programming the team’s robot. Students may also need to use computers for research, working on their teams website or media and submitting team awards.
Computers are often used during competition as part of the team’s drive stations for matches. Students will also use the computers during competition to update or fix potential electrical or programming issues.
