Day 3 (July 18th 2012) #2

Wow! It’s been a whirlwind three days…so much time, and yet it seems, so little has been done…but we’re getting there, slowly. To recap: Monday was the start of our epic journey.

Day 2 (July 17th 2012)

We are trying hard to get all the stuff together, our motor controllers are still having some problems with the logic, so we are going to bypass the controller logic so that we can run the thrusters and do testing on the other components.  The passive ballast system that we implemented was a […]

Day 2 – July 11 – Driving Team

We showered and dressed quickly, then loaded RoboVan and headed off to the hotel lobby for our complimentary breakfast (more […]
