Getting Started with Driver Hub
After receiving the Driver Hub it is advised to unbox the device, plug the Driver Hub in to charge over USB-C, and power on the Driver Hub. Below is the initial bring up process of the Driver Hub.
To install the battery place it with the REV Logo out and the -/+ located near the contacts for the device. Add on the rear door and screw in using the included M3 hardware.
When the Driver Hub is first powered up, or a factory reset is performed, an initial set up process is needed. Start by selecting next on the main screen to continue.
Select a local Wi-Fi network that has access to the internet, enter in the password for that network if required, and select next.
Time zone and date of the device are set by the local Wi-Fi network. Confirm these settings are correct before proceeding by the Next button.
Initial set up is complete! Select Finish to operate the Driver Hub.
After setting up the Driver Hub, the Software Manager application will open. Select the Update All button to start the download and installation of software updates for the Driver Hub.
Once the Driver Hub is connected to a Control Hub, you will have access to the entire Driver Station Application interface. Like any application, understanding the major components that make up the Driver Station Application interface, will maximize your ability to utilize the application efficiently. Consider the following components:
If you tap on area 4, it will switch to displaying the link speed and signal strength. It will go back to showing the signal strength and ping time if you tap it again.
The smaller number in area 8 is the lowest voltage that the Driver Station has observed from the Robot Controller. If you tap area 8, the lowest voltage will be reset to the current voltage.
The Driver Station Application allows for the connection of two gamepads. When working with the Driver Hub these gamepads can be plugged into any of the three USB 2.0 ports. Once the gamepads are plugged in, you will need to initialize them. For the following example we will use PS4 controllers, such as the Etpark Wired Controller for PS4 (REV-39-1865).
To initialize the gamepad that will act as User 1 (gamepad1, in code) press the options button and the
Xbutton on the gamepad at the same time. To initialize User 2 ( gamepad2, in code) press the options button and the
Obutton at the same time.
