V5 wireless console output with Robot Mesh Studio

With the release of V5 vexos version 1.0.6, Robot Mesh Studio now supports wireless console printing via the VEXnet controller:

  • Similar to wireless download, connect your computer to the V5 Controller using the USB cable.
  • Use the latest online version of Robot Mesh Studio at https://www.robotmesh.com/studio or download the latest version (2.0.2.0) of the Desktop edition, or rmbuild from https://www.robotmesh.com/desktop.
  • The firmware on your V5 will be automatically updated to 1.0.6 by Robot Mesh Studio if necessary.
  • Use console output commands (print) in your program to send information back to the computer’s console over the wireless connection.

That’s a small but important update, even this late in the season.
