Current progress

  • Circles
    • (Very) Rough implementation finished
    • Working on significantly better version that includes:
      • Wireless communication (for ease of transition to VIP)
      • Consistent and accurate radius distance for edge robots
    • Current state: Some bugs in wireless with multiple acks, otherwise wireless works. Number of robots is hard-coded for now. Still having problems with distance from beacon.
  • Advanced Circles / Early VIP
    • Working assumptions:
      • Edge robots on circumference
      • Number of robots (and their robot IDs) known by beacon (or VIP) robot
    • Current state: Edge robot can approximately orbit beacon robot (some change in radius due to odd shape of robots)
