Re: Some driving questions

Also, Betsie's "super clever" control system (which uses gyroscopic stabilisation) causes it to drive like a pile of dog poo. I have tried many changes to the control software to improve it, but I've never got it to be very usable. I'm beginning to think that putting more intelligence into, at leas...

Re: Some driving questions

With regards to your other questions, it's honestly just practice. Driver skill decides matches way more often than bot design does. Heck, there are some drivers here I'm convinced would be able to beat me at my best using nothing but a half empty tub of Margarine! To add a bit more, it's often why...

Re: Some driving questions

I've read about mixing (either on a chip or on the bot) making all steering (forward, reverse, back, forward) on one stick. I think I have this right. Mixing isn't necessarily moving it all to one stick but simply the act of making one channel a forwards/backwards and another steering (Making those...

Re: Team Shakey Build Diary

Served me well for plasticwork though I'm replacing it with a larger Wor...

Re: Team Shakey Build Diary

It's all polycarbonate of normally 1.5mm thick. For cutting I have a small CNC router, so I simply design the plates in CAD with the rest of the bot, program up the machine and it'll cut them out.

Re: Eddie J - DisinfectANT , Cilit BANG, Kinnettic Disassembly

It's always a fun day when the machines seem unhappy!

I'm looking forward to seeing it together though, and those wheels look great. :D

Re: Team Shakey Build Diary

I had plans for a drill bot for a long time but talking with Carl on Wednesday/Thursday kinda pushed me to actually start. tested out how to get the drill and motor together on Thursday, CADed Saturday and built today. Forgot to link a test video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5I-DcsneXg I think ...

Re: AWS'60 Results Analysis

It's always interesting to see breakdowns like this. Though just to add I don't think we actually have any fully fledged meltybrains competing, I thought they were all just Sit and Spins.
