Find the box

#piwarsupdate We're starting to put together code for autonomously attempting challenges now, and part of that is a big code refactor (that's mostly @robberwick ) I've been working on algorithms.

Communications Breakdown

Things We Built
#piwarsprogress we spent hours chasing a comms issue we think was sensor timeouts, causing buffer overflows. The battery holders had connector holders added (to stop accidental shorts) & a (3rd) battery holder/counterweight for the grabber configuration (with voltage monitor) pic.twitter.com/ff0aQaxSa0 — Mark Mellors (@MarkMellors) October 11, 2020

Pi Wars 2021 update lucky dip

Things We Built
#piwarsupdate is minor improvements this week. We fitted a set of new gearmotors & encoders with more gearing for better acceleration & low speed control (+tuned PID for them), taller grabbers to hold on to all three cubes,and now auto display the branch & hash of the teensy code pic.twitter.com/aBDu5clDOo — Mark Mellors (@MarkMellors) October 4, 2020
