Low Level Software Team - Tom

Accomplished:
  • Timers all worked out! Everything has a happy place. At least, until more thorough testing shows us that things are sad.
  • Rewrote sonar code to read on-demand instead of constantly
  • Built two BOMs (sort of), and have been squashing bugs. Close to working!
  • Started writing actual main file, with rosserial integration
  • Julian wrote some stepper driver code
  • Haven't had much time to work on the Gumstix
This week's goals:
  • Demoable BOM (how exactly does one demo this? Same problem as "demo wireless" last semester)
  • Demoable sonar (this would be really cool, but we need some kind of tower built... mechanical group?)
