Ladies(I hope) and Gentleman,
my summer vacation has started and I just finished doing the parts shopping.
It is hard to believe that pile of junk will become a robot one day. BTW, that was about $340(36000￥).
The only thing left is the laser scanner that I will receive next week.
For those who don't know what I am talking about:http://www.societyofrobots.com/robotforum/index.php?topic=4011.msg31113#msg31113
Anyway I have two questions:
1)Can i post the tutorial as a pdf?
2)If not, what should I do in order to start writting?
The reason I want to post as a pdf, it is because it is more printable then the format used here. And if you are reading on the computer you still can use links like HTML. The downside is not be able to embed videos(but I can just post the links to them). And I love the two column format used in technical magazines.
Now here is my schedule for this contest:
1st week of July:Shopping(done)
2nd " " " :Circuit, basic programming and chassis(yes 70% of the robot will be finished by Saturday)
3rd " " " :Laser scanner programming(part1)
4th " " " :Encoder programming
1st " " August:Laser scanner programming(part2)
2nd " " " :Line tracer programming
3rd " " " :Travelling
4th " " " :Travelling
In September there will be some updates but 95% of the tutorial will be finished but August.
I would like to use this thread to hear suggestions, extra things you want to see in the tutorial.
(about the mp3 feedback I was discussing in another topic, I think I will hack an very old Ipod shuffle I got. I was think about using my hacked psp but I dont think it will fit inside the robot
,but because I am using this robot for another real competition, music feedback will not be my priority until September/October(yes, after the due date). It will be a bonus I will add later)
