Operating System Changelog

Version 1.1.2 - Latest Version

When using OS 1.1.2 the Control Hub operates by defaults to the 5Ghz band. To switch to the 2.4 Ghz band without the REV Hardware Client, see the Resetting the WiFi Network section.

  • Adds support for Auto Channel Selection, where the Control Hub will pick the least busy WiFi channel on the selected WiFi band when it starts up

  • Migrates all users to Auto Channel Selection on the 5 GHz band by default.

    • If you find that you are unable to connect to the Control Hub after updating, you should perform a WiFi Factory Reset by holding down the Control Hub's button as it boots, until you see a colorful light sequence. That will reset the WiFi settings and switch to the 2.4 GHz WiFi band.

  • Allows switching the WiFi band between 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz by holding down the Control Hub's button when the hub has been booted for at least 20 seconds

    • If version 5.5 or later of the Robot Controller app is installed, the Control Hub's light will blink magenta when the band is switched to 5 GHz, or yellow when the band is switched to 2.4 GHz.

  • Continuously monitors the WiFi access point status, and will attempt to restart it if it goes down for any reason

  • Continuously monitors the Robot Controller app, and restarts it if it crashes or hangs (requires version 6.1 or later of the Robot Controller app)

  • Allows the Robot Controller app to access the current WiFi band and channel

  • Always backs up the FTC Robot Controller app data before it is uninstalled, in order to preserve WiFi settings

  • Improves WiFi reliability

  • Prevents issue that could cause device to boot into recovery mode

  • Enables use of mouse button in recovery mode

Version 1.1.1

  • Fixed bug where Wifi access point would sometimes fail to start after an Operating System update

  • Stopped the FtcAccessPointService UI auto-starting on boot

  • Allowed WiFi beacon rate to be changed by the FTC Robot Controller app

Version 1.1.0

  • Improved reliability of making changes to WiFi access point settings

  • Updated to latest Realtek WiFi driver

  • Increased WiFi beacon rate to 6mbps, which reduces congestion when many Control Hubs are being used in an area

  • Enabled 802.11w, which prevents WiFi deauthentication attacks when the Control Hub is used with a client device that also supports 802.11w

  • Added WifiLog.txt file for debugging and disconnection analysis

  • Improved reliability of FtcAccessPointService UI (accessed through an HDMI monitor)

  • Added 5 GHz channels to FtcAccessPointService UI

  • Ensured app data is not lost when installing a Robot Controller with a different signature via the Manage webpage
