To Do List By Janavi, Tycho, Max, Jayesh, Omar, Lin, Austin, and Darshan

Task: Update our To Do List


  • CDIM #2 on right side
  • color and distance sensors on right side -done
  • ultrasonic sensors
  • can we get rid of distance sensors?-done
  • omnidirectional travel sensor based on trackball- not high priority
  • omnidirectional travel sensor based on I2c mouse- not high priority


  • simplify beacon detection
  • second beacon
  • compute distance before slowing down
  • alt config to bypass a non-working beacon if it's the first
  • pointed at gap between beacons, drive until touching, square with imu, check / adjust distance with ultrasonic

Authonomous with Vision

  • More team members than Tycho study Fixit3491 videos 4 thru 7
  • Integrate OpenCV 3.2 back into app-done
  • Integrate Vuforia sample -done
  • Get image from Vuforia into OpenCV -done
  • Camera mount tweaking to get best vision line
  • test + upgrade to faster phones for better video processing - done
  • Does wide angle work with Vuforia configuration
  • Real Vuforia based auto navigation
  • OpenCV beacon analysis from Vuforia beacon localization

Particle Launcher / Flywheel + Rail Type

  • New grippy custom printed flywheel design
  • complete
  • Custom flywheel printed and assembled
  • done
  • 3 versions
  • nylon, open ninjaflex, dense ninjaflex
  • Rail design - done
  • Rail print - done
  • High speed motors - aquired
  • Frame and mount rails, flywheel and motor - done
  • Particle Release Gate and Servo mounting- done
  • Presentation narrative and blog updates - done

Cap Ball Fork Lift

  • Replace lift spool with double lift+retract spool made from Tetrix track guide wheels- done
  • Add slides for fork support- done
  • Add pulleys for retract spool- done
  • Add deployment servo
  • Fabricate folding fork
  • Figure out fork release by hyperextension- done
  • Can we retract cleanly? -done
  • Can we refold? CR servo reeling in a refold line might do the trick.
  • Code to support these capabilities

Journal / Blog Improvements -

  • lift and improving it
  • making the new side guards
  • assembling the canopy
  • robot reveal

    Awards Guidance Sheets

  • control award
  • fire beats cd

    Presentation - ADD STUFF HERE

  • pratice it!!!
  • increase info- mabye???
  • add charlotte and austin to the presentation

    Robot Reveal Video V1 - Shot List

    • Intro Sequence - half second shots of robot driving into frame from overhead, right side, front d
    • Mecanum Freedom - high overhead shot of robot going forward, strafing, diagonal, turning d
    • Particle Collector - close up short shots of collector running from side and from front d
    • Particle Collector - Pulling in a particle - muliple angles (can one of these be done with a dolly shot of moving particle?) d
    • Particle POV - camera on mat - robot strafes into view, engages collector and drives over camera until camera is at accumulator lift d
    • Particle Collector - shot from under the robot sitting on polycarb, camera under the polycarb at the rear of the robot lookup up, seeing a particle pulled in, guided by funnel and loaded into accumulator
    • Particle Collector - Automatic Opposing Alliance Particle Rejection
    • Particle Collector - Machine Vision Based Automatic Tracking and Collecting Behavior
    • Particle POV - running up accumulator lift - not sure if this is possible without animation
    • Shooting - with flywheel - wide shot of 4 balls coming out
    • Shooting - close up of Particle Release Gate d
    • Shooting - close up of Particles cycling through Launcher while off of robot
    • Shooting - close up of Particles landing in the vortex or on an accuracy marker
    • Cap Ball Lift Deployment
    • Cap Ball Lift Capture
    • Cap Ball Lift Raising
    • Cap Ball Lift Depositing
    • Cap Ball Lift Retracting
    • IMU Close up + 90 degree turn + station keeping behavior(on black turntable; make shot from above)
    • Navigation - Calibrated Odometry in both normal drive and strafing
    • Combined high accuracy Heading and Odometry with Trig = absolute field position (close up of telemetry, plus overhead view of a navigation sequence)
    • Autonomous - high speed of entire sequence - replace with machine vision version when available
    • Autonomous - machine vision localization of beacon targets - phone camera capture
    • Autonomous - beacon isolation and analysis - phone camera capture
