Controller Release at NI Week: ‘Athena’ Showcase

Back in June, I posted about the new FRC 2015 controller that National Instruments is developing for FIRST. Good news! NI is announcing the specs and details of the “Athena” controller at their annual NIWeek conference this week!

They are hosting a live stream & panel for an event called the “Athena” showcase for students who can’t attend NIWeek to watch live. Be sure to watch the Athena Showcase live at http://new.livestream.com/accounts/4829514/athena.  Visit the live stream website for further information on timing.

Date: Thursday, August 8

Time: 11:00 – 12:00 CST

Location: Online -- http://new.livestream.com/accounts/4829514/athena

Tweet your questions about #Athena to @niFIRSTrobotics and see if it gets answered by the live panel discussion participants.

Leading the panel is Kit of Parts Manager, Kate Pilotte. From FIRST, you’ll see appearances from Don Bossi, president of FIRST and me. From NI, Greg McKaskle, Chris Rake, and Joe Hershberger will all be on the panel.


See you at NIWeek,
