True... my robot will be a little faster than that... in the wrong directionGreenlight wrote:I think at 90 seconds the average speed would be about 6.5 mph
Shimniok, It looks like from your video you will have no trouble beating that speed.
Also, crashing into things lowers the robot's average speed somewhat...
I had some setbacks the last week or so but I think I'm almost caught up to where I was two weeks ago. Which was about a month behind.
Seriously tho, I am making progress, especially the last few nights. The main challenge right now is getting good gyro and compass readings.
I think the robot can navigate on GPS alone, worst case. Hopefully I can sort out the issues or else I will ditch my 3DOF poor man's IMU in favor of a more polished, COTS solution. I prefer system integration to in-the-weeds development when affordable
And, I hope to have the obstacle avoidance stuff in a barely-working state by the end of the weekend.
Cripes, just over 3 weeks left. That's like a splash of cold water in the face... ok, back to work...
