    NavX-2 Micro, 9-axis Inertial/Magnetic Sensor

    The navX-2 Micro is the greatest sensor for orientation in competitive robots. navX2-Micro is a second-generation 9-axis inertial/magnetic sensor and motion processor. Designed for plug-n-play installation onto robots such as those used in the WorldSkills Robotics, FIRST Technology Challenge (FTC) and the FIRST Robotics Challenge (FRC), navX2-Micro helps build better robots by adding sophisticated navigation capabilities. Significant improvements over the classic navX-Micro allow for more accuracy, decreased yaw drift, and faster boot time. navX-2 Micro includes software algorithms for enhanced sensor calibration as well as KalmanFilter-based data fusion combining gyro, accelerometer, and magnetometer data into a 9-axis heading and high-quality magnetometer calibration including magnetic disturbance detection.
      
    In addition to being an Inertial Measurement Unit, navX-Micro capabilities are referred to within the aerospace industry as an “Attitude/Heading Reference System” (AHRS). Kauailabs brings this high-tech AHRS capability to FIRST teams – to use, learn, and explore. navX-Micro is a key component of Kauailabs’ ongoing efforts to make state-of-the-art navigation technologies used in drones and autonomous vehicles (e.g., the Google Car) available to robotics students and enthusiasts as low-cost, open-source products.

    Improvements over navX "Classic":
    navX2-Micro features a new set of IMU & Magnetometer sensors with superior sensor specifications to those on the MPU-9250 sensor. This board has a faster 180Mhz microcontroller and an optimized startup time at 5 seconds versus 15 seconds. In addition, it has a completely new Kalman Filter-based Sensor Fusion algorithm running internally at a blazing fast 416Hz. 
     

    RoboRIO Installation
    It's recommended to connect to the RoboRIO using a USB Mini-B type (Male) to USB A type (Male) connector, navX-Micro can receive both power and also communicate with the RoboRIO. This preferred installation method allows the navX-Micro circuit board to be placed up to 6 meters away from the RoboRIO.
     

    IMPORTANT NOTE:  To avoid having the navX-Micro reset due to a RoboRIO brownout, connecting the navX-Micro to the RoboRIO via USB is highly recommended.

    2023 Game Piece Cone

    Each CONE (am-4700_syc) is a yellow 1 ft. ¹³⁄₁₆ in. (~33 cm) tall rubber marker cone and weighs 1lb 7oz (~653 g). Each CONE has an 8⅜ in. (~21 cm) +/- ⅛in. (~3 mm) square base with ¼ in. (~7 mm) tall feet.

    Each CUBE (am-4700_bpc) is made of purple PVC fabric and is marked with a FIRST logo. The CUBE is a cube-like shape, inflated to 9 ½ in. (~24 cm) +/- ¼ in. (~6 mm) as measured from face to face, but these ship deflated. A CUBE has rounded corners, may not have flat surfaces, and the length, width, and height of the sides may not be equal dimensions. A CUBE weighs 2.5 oz (~71 g). 

    The Cube Measurement Jig (am-4700_cmj) is a tool developed by FIRST to calibrate CUBE inflation at events. The appropriate range for CUBE inflation is between when the cube can lift the jig off the ground due to it's inflation, and when the cube touches both sides of the jig at the same time. The total weight of the jig is important in determining the minimum bound.
