Thank you Mr. Terryberry!
This week saw trials and tribulations; what you would expect when installing on systems, to run to different systems. First we couldn't get the Java to the robot. How will the robot run without the code, you ask? Well, you could kick it, but it's going to hurt...a lot. Instead, we spent a lot of time, a lot of Googling, and we solved the problem. TA DA! Our robot runs autonomously and with a joystick. VICTORY!!!(Yelled out in a William Wallace accent.)
We've been hard at work wiring, setting up a pneumatics system (thanks spell check), learning to drill, learning to solder, learning to use rivets. A SPECIAL THANKS GOES OUT TO OUR MAIN MENTOR, MR. MARK TERRYBERRY. Without him, our robot might be a lovely paper weight!
We've also hit a funky snag getting firmware (we've learned to, like many in the software and technology business, hate firmware.) The firmware won't load on our wifi connector. Hours of work...lost. We're learning. We'll get it going and then wifi will take us to hifi!
Bzzzzt. Beepeeeep. Ping. Zeeeeerrrrttt.
