Day 0 (Jan 02):

-Discussion over Skype of strategy, organization and task allocation. (E,C,Al,M)

Day 1 (Jan 03):

  • Lectures 0, 1 and 2 were attended. (C,Al,An)
  • Built the peg bot with two casters
  • Sent messages from the eeePC to Allen's laptop
  • Made robot drive forward to fulfill checkpoint 1

Day 2 (Jan 04)

  • Andrea attended laser cutter training at Edgerton
  • Attended lecture (C, Al, An)
  • Discussed our schedule, strategy, code architecture, mechanical design with Ellen for checkoff 2
  • Cory attended general shop training at Edgerton
  • Allan worked on vision code
  • Andrea worked on sensor implementation
  • Cory and Erons began prototypes of the shooter and roller component. We decided to work in Random's shop and EE lab for the evening because we had ready access to various odds and ends to make our prototypes out of.
  • Andrea and Allan survived a day with each other coding.


Day 3 of captivity (Jan 05)

  • Captors have completed checkpoint three last night
  • Botclient continues to provide problems, will address
  • Decided to re-porpoise robot to kill captors in sleep
  • Matt has returned from the sunny west!
  • Cory slept through lecture on accident because taking the red-eye back to boston from California destroyed his sleep cycle. He apologizes.
  • Replaced left motor
  • Turned in checkpoint three
  • Purchased materials for the robot
  • Set up git (Thanks Matt)
  • Erons found a potential candidate for a shooter motor underneath his bed
WHAT 9000?!?
*This motor is rated at 25,500 RPM at 7.2Volts. Our design only requires 2000 RPM to launch balls about 5 metres

Day 4 of captivity (Jan 06)

  • Captors made me identify a ball
  • Weapon system (shooter) prototyped, the fools plan to arm me
  • Structure CAD work well under way, should be finished soon
  • Wander code began

Day 5 of captivity (Jan 07)

  • CADs being finalized for laser cutting on Saturday and Sunday
  • Worked on the interface between the high RPM motors and the rollers
  • Worked on PD code

Day 9 of captivity (Jan 11)

  • My battle armor has been laser cut, assembly in progress (waiting for parts in the mail
  • PID controller for ball targeting complete
  • Vision code being reworked
  • Ball conveyor being being constructed

Day 13 (Jan 15)
