From Maslab 2011
Monday January 3
Today we attended lecture and then assembled our pegbot and got it driving. Trying to get a jump on the work ahead of us, we took pictures of the field and of the balls with our webcam for vision testing and started to wire up several IR sensors and a gyro.
Dan finalized 4-bar synthesis for the mechanism that raises the ball hopper up over the wall. He also figured out how everything will fit inside the robot's circular footprint.
Tuesday January 4
Dan got the majority of the detailed mechanical design finished.
