Day 17 – Taking Control

Matthew and Riley printed a few more camera mounts, in case the ones we currently have break. This was an issue we found with the store-bought camera mounts.

Aaron is working on connecting a Raspberry Pi to a Linux system.

Ryan and I have decided to re-write the two programs required to control the robot, using characters instead of messed-up integers.


Main Controls
Button Name Button Character Button Function
R1, Right One r Reverse Right Servos
R2, Right Two R Forward Right Servos
L1, Left One l Reverse Left Servos
L2, Left Two L Forward Left Servos

For example, R2  would set the servos on the right to forward, turning the robot in a gentle curve to the left. L2 would do the same, but in the opposite direction. Holding both R2 and L1 would set the right servos moving forward and the left moving backwards, turning the robot left on the spot.


Claw & Arm Controls
Button Name Button Character Button Function
Directional Button Up W Arm Up
Directional Button Left A Open Claw
Directional Button Down S Arm Down
Directional Button Right D Close Claw
