The programming, and hardware on the robot is finished for our "Docking Logic" program, with the PICbot 5. We have a huge amount of writing up to do on what has been learned so far, a very in depth knowledge base for building a self charging robot.
We are now left with evaluation of three different contact configurations on the charging base:
Dual brass hoops
Antenna flat plate
Here is the latest images, two new ones and a mpg movie of the PIC bot V with the charging base we are now evaluating:
Let me know what you think!
