This presentation was given to the 2014 Hampton Roads FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) Summit, held Saturday 9 November 2013 at the Peninsula Higher Education Center in Hampton, VA. It provides a discussion about the reasons why a pneumatic actuation system might be a good choice in many FRC applications, develops a symbolic language which can be used to describe and design pneumatic systems, and gives solutions to many of the common problems that FRC pneumatics face in operation.
