Walter's "Mapping" and Control Panel
Here is some of the first tests of Walter's mapping system. There are 2 videos, one showing a mapping run and the data, the other showing the hardware I used. Bonus: I think this might be the first time walter has appeared on LMR after paint and after wiring. I have been begging for a compas as most of you know and you can see on the video exactly how the map can get askew quickly with just one lost turn. I think the videos speak for themselves.
I should add that I would still have to call this a success. The wheels are being read, data is being written and read back, data is being relayed twice, the data is converted twice and still --the map is damn close to what we actually did and is to scale. By the way, if you saw in the video, you may have seen 3 extra click boxes noting the room size. These are to scale the map being drawn during playback as to be sure to stay within the map window. Also by the way, thanks rik for adding the "proportion control" into your mapping code when you wrote it... I used it, thanks!
