Work from 1/5/2012

Today, we are trying to make Steve’s ultrasound sensor work more proficiently. We also updated the code so it would go straight without the use of sensors. Chuck was proud of his magic numbers. The magic numbers stand for motor speeds which are 135, and 170. After our first test, we could see that Steve was maneuvering in a pretty straight line. We then tried drawing again, but we apparently could not go straight. So, we tested the wheels again and we realized we were off with the rotation by 0.1 seconds. After more tests, we haphazardly drew a couple stars. Sadly, we want triangles, not stars. Now, we took a step down to drawing circles. After more tests, we started to draw shapes that resemble triangles.
