Today was a momentous occasion. Today we had our robot operated by an alumni student, Eric Perry, who is in Grand Junction at Colorado Mesa University! This means that we now can run our robot over large distances and we succeeded in climbing the hill that defeated the previous set of wheels.
Another milestone, our updated circuit boards came in! These improved circuit boards have many more ports for connecting things like servos, motors, camera pan and tilt motion, and other empty ports for any future uses.
Below are pictures of the new board being soldered and a before and after shot of the old board (on the top) and the new board (on the bottom). Also included is a picture of the robot climbing a hill, while being controlled by Eric Perry and a new team picture.
