  • Status Updates
    • Diagnostic Station
      • Tests
        • 4+1 tests
      • Server
        • Serial communication now reading from robot
        • TODO: sending data/commands to station
      • Station
        • Software
          • Can send commands to the robot (e.g. setting motors)
          • Can receive packets from robot
          • Basic test running
          • Basic server communication
            • Interactive Mode - menu
            • Server Mode - station receives commands from server
          • Dynamos/encoders are working (not heavily tested, though)
          • Inverse BOM sanity check works
        • Hardware
          • Using motor/encoder for turntable (instead of servo) - high priority
            • Steal Brad for PID control
          • Moving wall is low priority
      • Robot
        • Can receive commands from the station
    • Mapping
      • Autonomous Mapping - Abe
        • Beginning rewrite of smart run around to use new rangefinder code
      • Data Gathering - Not real-time/online is fine
      • For MoM
        • construct maps for 2-3 robots, correlate/stitch together
        • running separately is okay for now
    • Simulator
      • Able to add circles to the environment, but circle collision doesn't work
      • TODO: include on Reliability poster, simulator demo
      • Simulator Ideas #470
      • Brian needs to name his successor
