Today was another productive day. Yesterday, the ultrasonic sensors on the prototype robot weren’t functioning properly. Today, some optimization on the software side and noticing that the sensor was slightly damaged helped us fix the issue so that all the current electronics we have work properly. We also wrote a simple library to make writing code a bit easier in the future, which can be found here. We also got the 3D printed motor mounts meant to be used with a suspension system printed.
We intend on using encoders alongside the motors to be able to have more control and install suspension systems mainly for the Spirit of Curiosity challenge. The line following code from yesterday was also completed, however problems with a couple libraries got in the way of testing unfortunately. Hopefully, tomorrow will have even more progress!
