Install day! Today lots of people installed lots of software onto their computers. Yep. Nothing much else happened.

Hey, software team! Here are some useful links:

Yesterday I wrote a method to reset the PIDs in the middle of driving.  I started working on graphing wheel outputs but didn't get it finished.  I will hopefully finish that tomorrow.

Yesterday I got a lot of work done.  You can now successfully align the robot to the camera and then have the camera reset to the default position.  This goes more slowly than it should because the camera waits for the robot to rotate before resetting itself.  (I should probably fix that.)  The camera code should also probably be updated to use positions rather than angles to set values, seeing as angles are really imprecise.  I also set far higher maximum voltages for the rotations so now the robot rotates extremely quickly.  I was again unable to commit from the local computer because the internet was down.  Camera still lacks an internal robot power source.

Also, Nick-- don't blame Andy for the 12 o's.  That was Paul.

Git Spiders (2/6/12)

So I forgot to grab the code off the laptop on Sunday.  My bad.  I did a little merging and rebasing to try and get as many projects up to date as I could.  It might cause  few conflicts when we go to merge the local laptop.  I was not planning on going to the meeting Tuesday, but I may be able to carve out enough time to get the git tree setup down there.  

Also.....
Please refrain from putting 12 o's in git branches (cough, cough, Paul).  It makes it a little difficult when checking it out for the first time.

Edit: Blame.

On Thursday, Paul and I worked on making the camera servos spin.  We managed to get it working for a while, but then the tilt servo started to fail.  We suspect it's a mechanical/electrical problem.  Paul did most of the programming on the official Robotics developing computer.  Unfortunately, it couldn't connect to the internet, so we weren't able to commit to the git repository.

Yesterday, I worked on trying to get the camera servos to spin.  Unfortunately, a lot of the updated code wasn't working with the robot so I took out some things to make it work.  The servos have yet to spin, though the code is in place for them to do so.  I'll hopefully get them working on Thursday when Nick is back.
