Priya is sick. I think it is the 410 bubonic-plague.

Subgroup Updates

Warehouse Behavior - Priya

  • Have pseudo-code for scheduler algorithm
  • Start work on implementing it this week
  • Finishing porting over code
  • Working on getting map representation
  • Defining robot-scheduler interface tomorrow

Mechanical - John

  • new meeting time is Friday 4:30
  • mold making session tonight 7PM robotics club
  • Dan is starting to make molds and parts in earnest so now is the time to pitch in

Forklift - Julian

  • Determined necessary electronics. Will start designing board for next meeting.
  • Kyle compiled a list of motors to use with the forklift. We need to specify which one in the next couple of weeks.
  • Misty is working on designing a belt drive in solidworks.
  • Meeting time this week? (Current one conflicts with EOC)
  • Received Mini-RC Forklift

Simulator (and ROS) - Alex

  • Not super much done
  • Leon developed some good teleop code, but will still tailor it so we can control the scouts better.

Board - Abe

  • Progress
    • Routed more of updated Scoutfly circuit
    • Power test board
      • Determined that board failed initially due to voltage regulator rated for supply voltage lower than battery voltage
      • Also observed more weirdness in pushbutton controller
      • Acquired voltage regulators with higher input voltage rating and more pushbutton controllers
      • Testing in progress, no definitive results yet
  • Goals for next week
    • Get pretty close to finishing Scoutfly routing
    • Get pushbutton controller working and bootloader on AVR

Low-level Software - Ben

  • Goals for Wednesday
    • Have documentation on ARM GPIO
    • Have documentation on AVR GPIO
    • Have yay/nay for ROSSerial
    • Have yay/nay + plan for wireless-new

Other Updates

  • Colony Frisbee?
