starting some thing new
we were given a new task of modifying the square-bot, its new goals are stated in the previous log. So first is what are we planning on changing and adding to the robot. My first thought is to place another motor to move a hook arm attached to the chassis, the only down side is how are we gonna move the robot and the arm at the same time .

We Fin.......ish... No? Okay
Well its finally done our nightmare is finally over. Its be a rough path and many fails but we finally manage to finish. I say we did pretty decent for our self but it is what it is. We now will embark on a new challenge which is to program the robot to pick up a triangle shaped object and place it on a pipe. Each pipe has a different value for example one has 50 point and another has 20 etc. But we finally finished the nightmares are over.

This week we are planning to program the robot to go around the 2 chairs 3 times. We were at a lost until our teacher told us what to do, we haven't decided weather to make it go in a circle or in a wide square. We have a lot of pressure on us cause we are planning to turn it in this week, if not then RIP..
Things To Be Done This Week
-Make robot go in a circle or wide square
-Finish and turn in

We are currently modifying the programming to make the robot go in a larger circle, while avoiding the chairs but we have come across a few difficulties. The inner motor(left motor) moves faster than the outer motor, causing it to turn slowly, drifting in the left direction. A solution to this is to slow down the inner motor and speed up the outer motor. We also experienced the robot doing a complete 360 degree turn. We are going to continue to modify our program and if we don't receive good repetitive results, we will review again on Monday and come up with some other options as a team.

Back To The Basic:Programming
This week we plan on making the new code I talked about in last weeks blog. The new code involves the robot going in a wider cycle without it being to close the the chair but just far enough that it can going around the two chair 3x. Things to be done:
-Modify or create new code
-Test the code until it's works
-Finish and turn in.

The Revelation Of Coding
We have finally figured out what to do with a little help of our teacher, but we have finally figured that we need to make the cycle around the chair wider and we also need a bigger area to work with. So Monday we are planning to do the coding and making the code cycle around the chair 3 times. Today we will work on other things because we don't want one of the member to miss out on the coding.
