Making it happen

May 5
Good news today - our E-stop is fully functional! We've got compressed air that slams the brakes when the power is cut, and manual and electronic relays are installed. Computer integration has been a bit more of a challenge - yet another computer blew up on us onWednesday(!) But we're testing our home brew laser rangefinder on a variety of colors and textures - it will be lots of fun if this $100 instrument does the job. We've also hooked a "fail-safe" ultrasound unit from Sports Imports, Ltd. This system was designed for parking cars, but two of our programmers have now "hotwired" the system so we can connect it directly to our computers. Our robotic senses at the site visit will be primitive but functional. - Pete Markiewicz, Team Leader
