Matthew and Riley are leaving the robot chassis for a bit while they learn Python. So far, they have learned about variables and operators, along with printing contents to the console.

Ryan and I, however, are now working in C++, a more powerful but also more complex language that should work with all the systems we’re using with the robot. After a bit of research, we found that ROS, OpenCV and Dynamixel are all compatible with C++. We are creating simple programs to get used to the new IDE, Microsoft Visual Studio 2013, as well as figuring out how we can remove some of the headers Microsoft provides, which won’t work on the Linux environment of the Raspberry Pi.
