Site visit work

We got a site visit.

This means we need to get all the little things working now so we can impress DARPA. I recently smoothed out some code for processing the sensor data (from the fuser module) and fixed some of the code for boundry avoidance. Both of these will need testing, which I hope to finish soon.

Video is done

We finished up the video that needs to be sent off to DARPA for the next round of qualifications.

Take a look (about 169 megs): http://www.csh.rit.edu/~rhubarb/gcart/G-CART.avi

The coop is now over, so my posts won't be about what kind of hours I put in anymore. There is still a lot of work to be done to cover some special situations (mainly getting into a dead end and needing to go in reverse) and there will probably be a lot of testing to be done after we get the LADAR system. Testing should be fun (if it doesn't work, we hit whatever we were trying to avoid). I have been avoiding some portions of the code because it is going to be a long drawn out process that might or might not work. The simulator will be my best friend while testing the AI when we want to go in reverse.

Now that we have a working car, it seems so much easier to get donations. I think we have gotten two donations of $3k each in the past month. We're far from being fully funded, but it is definetly a good start.
