As you may well guess, we programmers have a bit of time on our hands while we wait for the new robot to be at a programmable point, so we have been working on our to-do list. Tonight we did the following:
That seems about it for today. In addition to that we used some of our time yesterday to make a few more CAN to Serial cables; ours were not always working properly...
As of last night, we now have a full-sized metal pyramid constructed for our full-sized field. If you would like to join us and practice with the tower, go to the field scheduling page and submit a date and time on the calendar (website account registration required).
Last night we got our first prototype for the climber working. We plan to build the other half tonight, and hopefully develop a method to drive it.
