Our first version of the board for Dash has arrived, and we're working through all the little bugs that come with a prototype. This board is fully equipped with microprocessor, Bluetooth 4, gyroscope, and more. It allows us to run the robot, test code, and check all the circuitry. We will be developing a smaller version next, which should be close to the final version that you'll get with the robot once they ship. Our assembled versions are squirreled away in Dwight's workshop, but here is a picture of some of the bare boards.
Here, we see Dwight explaining electronics to us poor Mechanical Engineers:
And finally, a partially assembled/disassembled board we've been using for debugging:
We're also working on all the other pieces in parallel, keep watching for more chassis, powertrain, and app developments!
