again, a lowkey programming night – until we can see the given drive code to see how well/badly it drives, we don’t have that much to do. writing the code for corkscrew/servo gate is going to be a snap [let’s hope i’m not jinxing it by saying that]. we’ve basically done it already – using a joystick button to control a motor.
-shreya, divya, and tobi wrote simple code of their own! yay! button 2–>arcade drive, and also servo stuff.
-we were having wireless issues. again. but then we changed the main battery and things were happier. so maybe the wireless gets more finicky the lower the battery?
-divya grounded the driver station – according to a FIRST update, you have to do it. it wasn’t really that exciting, but anyway it’s done. basically just wiring a pwm from the gnd endings to this random screw. there were diagrams, she followed them…
-jimmy stopped by with one of the mutant gearboxes! both the axle for the wheel and the motor are on the same side, just like we want he’s begun to cut the metal meaning we are well on our way to having a chassis!
i have a promise from anndini that one of them will actually blog tonight.
