Our project demo is also successfully finished and the only thing left to do for this project is the final project report which is due June 15 since we are integrating that report with a conference paper. This is the last update I`ll be making to our electronic notebook, but I`ll add the final report to our project website when that is completed. This week Dr. Malinowski and I connected all the hardware to the microcontroller and tested all of the components.

The metal detectors, the analog and the digital IR sensors all worked correctly. We tested this by connecting the microcontroller to hyperterminal on the computer and got favorable results. This means that the hardware is all complete and ready for interfacing in the C+ code. The C+ code can now be written to account for the metal detectors, and the IR sensors. Here is a copy of the code that is running on the microcontroller: Microcontroller Code Our Final Senior Presentation is April, 29th 2010. Scott Tipton and I have updated and practiced the presentation and are ready to present. Scott also updated the website today, to show all of our completed work as well as our updated presentation. This week I finished the server/central command setup for our project. The server can now switch between the following modes: wall following, grassfire, potential field, random movement, joystick/user override, and quit. I also setup the robot agent to accept goal coordinates from the server instead of a local user. At anytime if I change the goal coordinates while in grassfire or potential field, the map is recalculated. Also, if I switch between the two path finding modes it will use the same goal coordinates setup by the server. Joystick is also fully implemented on the server side now so that central command now overrides the robot instead of a local user. Dr. Malinowski programmed the joystick code to run in its own thread and all...
