Day 36: More autonomous (and robot) testing

Today we spent more time testing autonomous. This involved lots of Fancy Math (aka addition, subtraction, and a little bit of multiplication), Fine-Tuning (aka changing the same numbers over and over again), and Praying for Mercy (no explanation needed).

The modes that the software team is working on are quite…interesting. That is all I will say. An apt description would be “dancing”.

In between autonomous testing, sub-teams also made minor modifications when something broke (which happened more often than it should).

Alas, our lift motors broke again. The smoke smelled noticeably worse than last time.

After 4pm (when our Saturday meetings usually end) a few people went over to a practice field to test autonomous some more.
