BrainBot is Hardware-Complete
For the next two days, I will be concentrating on software. The gripper software needs a small update to deal with the wrist sensor, and the overall package needs a little more integration and cleanup. My friend and colleague Julian has been taking care of the Smalltalk side of things, and yesterday we got wifi control of the robot integrated with SYNC_WRITE and SYNC_READ, which allows us to update the position/speed of each actuator in one instruction, and read sensor information from each device on the bus with a second instruction.
Things are coming down to the wire, but I think this thing is going to work really well...
