27. Sumo Project / Prototype 2's Electronic System

Post date: Jul 22, 2016 8:41:19 PM

Just finished the soldering and testing the components for Prototype 2! Pretty excited, especially since I don't have to continue soldering ( that is, assuming nothing will break )! The next set of steps now are to complete the Border Algorithm, the set of rules that determine what to do if the robot tries to cross the border and when the robot will return to moving forward. The Border and Tracking Algorithm will then have to be integrated together and optimized, especially the Tracking Algorithm. Part of the optimization will include implementing a calibration mode, so that the sensors will report consistent values for the same distances.

Anyways, check out the latest video!
