We updated our GitHub repositories.
Yesterday we had a long testing period. Because of the different ground surfaces we tested on, our turn method works inconsistent. We decided to test in a classroom as its ground is similar as we expect it to be at the competition. Through many adjustments we managed to turn our bot precisely. We also fixed … Eurobot 2017/2018 – Hardware Test: Driving weiterlesen
On Wednesday we had an extensive testing period. Following a line is more difficult than you might think it is.

We finally assembled our main robot for eurobot competition. First tests .... sound promising! 😉
