We discussed the idea of switching to the RoboCup Rescue competition, participating with a Emu Mini 2, part of the Open Academic Robot Kit. We’ve also expanded our team to include Aaron Maggs, as we are now working on the robot in both our Computer Studies class and our Digital Technology class.
For the most part of this lesson, we’ve discussed the ideas we have for the robot, how to improve the design, and what we will be using to control the robot (a Raspberry Pi 2 or B+)
This lesson, Ryan and Jack have started learning Python on Codecademy. Fortunately, Python is a very simple language compared to others such as Java, which both Ryan and Jack have used frequently in the past.
