Yesterday we continued to train up some of our club members to try out some of the obstacles using the Wii_mote_nunchuck controller. The results were very good, with some steady manoeuvring around a makeshift golf course ramp and mini obstacle course. The servo golf ball gizmo worked well.
In addition to the training, we were also trying out a new sensor set up – using two sensors to gauge distance from the side wall + the wall in front. The logic kind of worked! Still some work to do, but this method looks more promising than just a single ultrasonic sensor. See results below.
