Making parts

Robogames getting closer

The Robogames are coming up pretty soon.  Here is my team almost finished.  You can see Driller Shark on the left after the board and sensor overhaul.  The trusty Blaster Shark on the right.  And the new guy in the middle which still needs some stuff but is coming along.  That is all for now.

SI1120 Sensor working

Developed the code some more to determine which side and how far an object is. The green LEDs signify whether or not either side detects an object. The yellow LEDs signify which side the object is. Lastly the red LED indicates of the object is really close.

Getting ready for San Francisco

I've been busy lately getting a hacker space set up here in Saskatoon, so I haven't made much progress on my robots.  But now that the RoboGames in San Francisco is coming up, I'm getting my butt in gear.  Here are some of the things I'm working on.  A sensor board and my new sumo.  Blaster shark and Driller shark(currently getting rebuilt) are going as well.  TTFN
