The game release has come! Now it’s time to build and program your robot. For this year’s game, one scoring opportunity is to recognize and move skystones in autonomous mode. For this season, you have the option to use specialized machine learning software to simplify the task of identifying and tracking the game elements during autonomous mode.

TensorFlow, Google’s “machine learning technology,” has been trained to recognize the game elements from this season’s challenge. You can use this technology to program your robot to look for and navigate to game elements, such as a skystone.

Bruce Schafer, from the Oregon Robotics Tournament and Outreach Program, has created a video tutorial that demonstrates how to use TensorFlow to find and navigate autonomously to seek and find a skystone for this season’s challenge:

The sample Blocks Op Mode that accompanies Bruce’s tutorial video can be found here:

Thank you to Bruce Schafer for his work on the TensorFlow tutorial! FIRST Tech Challenge appreciates his contributions to improving the experience for our teams!
