Another update on Lobsang! I've been doing lots of work on the code so a lot of the progress is not visible. However, the Lobsang.py library and the RasPiO Duino's core.ino have bee heavily modified. New functionalities have been written and the whole boot-up process is a lot smoother.
Let me expand on the boot process as to hackers and roboteers (ie. not normal people!) it is quite interesting.
1: Power switch set to 'ON'. Pi, Duino, and everything else on Lobsang is powered on.
