Making some progress on the Ultimate TABLEBot http:/ /www.camppeavy.com/Ultimate/Expand.html

Worked on Rusty some... going to clean-up instead of adding-to.

Did nothing with Spring... except move her in... which is a good thing as it might rain.

Welp, indeed talking about doing stuff didn't make it happen. I poked around a bit on the article... and we had a great meeting the other night <www.camppeavy.com/html/HBRC05Nov1.html> but the improved strategy on Rusty and Springy's stuff didn't even get touched.

Stuff got in the way.

It's just 1 step... of course I was trying to do "1 step" on three different projects... and what am I doing now???

Typing this damn blog instead of "step 1" on any one of 3 projects.


That's all for now.

No it isn't.

You're (I am anyway) always torn (well not always) between a total teardown and adding on. Both Rusty and Springy could use a little bit of both... tearing down and building up that is. In other words I want to tear it down and clean it up but at the same time I would be taking the robot down from its current pinnacle (yeah, right). Hey! Maintenance IS progress.

The next step...

Springy : Autonomous Makeover... My next step is to get the Stamp functioning again after the 9.6 volt through servo incident. :-/

Rusty: Smarter Strategy... Currently Rusty tracks the combined lat/long direction. A smarter strategy will be to carousel between working the combined, latitude and then longitude variable(s).

PROTOBot: The Ultimate TABLEBot... New article for SERVO mag. Did some work on it today.

My thought here... if I annunciate my next step(s) to the whole world I'm more likely to actually do it... we'll see.

The hardest thing is always the next step. The Ultimate TABLEBot needs a check of the Swivel "Ping!" sensor. BTW: If you haven't tried a "Ping!" you're missing the best sensor in the world... so far. One wire ultrasonic; Pulsout... Pulsin. 5 for $100... eat'em like popcorn.

The Ultimate TABLEBot

Did that check... am getting consistent readings as the sensor turns from left to right. Its raw distance time-of- flight is ~5600 or 11200 micro-seconds for about 3'.
