|This is a final call to whoever didn't finish all its obligations to the course>|
you have by Thursday 12:00 to finish all your obligations including giving me the documented code
otherwise you get your grade decreased.
|Note that your robot has 3 attempts to get to the target,|
I will give a 4th attempt if needed.
Also I intend to be more generous in the grades then what was published.
All this to say one thing:
Please, don't kill yourself!
Tell me what your robot can do and I can tell you if it is enough.
presentation postponed again
|Due to requests|
A week postponment same hour
Sorry for any inconvinience
Due To requests
|Project presentation is delayed to Thur. at 10:00|
Please let me know asap if it is not good for you,
14.9 is the Correct date
Present your project ( you can prepare short presentation)
2 runs on the map (2 courses)
1 run with a surprise obstacle.
Project moed B
|12.9 is the new date|
Documentation: internal & external,
good enough for delivering it to someone that wants to continue from where you stopped
Project submision delayed
|Almost all of you have requested delay in the project so it is delayed |
the exact date is not yet known but I am thinking about 13.9
please tell me if there is a problem with it
Update about the last task
|the last task in the test of the project (the surprise obstacle)|
The surprise obstacle should be located at list 0.5 m from any starting point
Moed A presentations postponed to Wednesday
new protocol avalable
Encoders resolution change to about 1.5 mm per side, 10 times accurate than before.
NOTE that encoder data is stil 16 bit !! reset to 0 before maximum signed int16 value!!!
Answer for D, T,C, SPACE, 0, S,M is replaying the source checksum as second returned value
Turn curve function: is both setting the draft speed sign and active according to current Drive or Turn command.
Read sonar option 11 does 5-10 as an atomic operation
Projects offers for this summer
|in material section|
Protocol is also updated
|A new driver was installed on the Ants. Version DU2.0.4.050709|
Students are capable of fast sonars reading.
Use R5 for ping all sonars and fast read of sonars without ping delay (R6-R10)
Note that R6-R10 will return the sonar reading from the last ping. A set of R6-R10 calls should be called only right after R5.
|1. When the robot thinks that he has reached his target he needs |
to shut itself with ~ (this is how we know that he finished)
2. The map is available.
3.The planned tasks:
Getting from one rest area (marked with circle) to another.
You may assume that the starting orientation is vertical to the box edges (4 possible orientations)
ending orientation is free.
The plan is to do this three times the last one with one unplanned obstacle.
4. Planned dates: 20.7.09 Moed A.
12.8.09 Moed B.
5. Please write me an update on your project current status.
documentation documentation documentation!
|I remind you that your code should be easily understandable. |
Good documentation is a must.
Such that if someone wants to pick this project at the point that you finish
he should feel comfort with using your code.
Tomorrow's Tirgul is canceled
|I plan to replcae Ehud at the lecture time|
good news for some of you
|some of you had points addesd to the exam due to a mistake in the checking|
|Hi I plan to give one qu. from ch.4|
Please bring Craig (3rd edition) if you don't have it please tell me.
Midterm Moed B
|is schedualed for first hour of the next lecture.|
The plan is to give one qu. from Craig.
|GVD is generalized voronoi diagram (p 117) in the book.|
q.5 : don't do the graph, just draw the cells(there are too many cells)
Choset's slideshow on cell decomposition is in his site:
A mistake in the protocol table
|"The ascii HEX code for 'e' (answer for E) should be 65 and not 3C as written."|
Thanks to Guy and Omer
Yet another version of the protocol is available!
|look in projec>preparation drill|
Tirgul instead of Lecture: 10:30-12:30
|because we have alot of material to cover. I hope to finish before 12:20.|
Next week tirgul 11:30-12:30
|is planned, instead of the lecture. (the first hour 10:30-11:30) is cancelled|
schedual for Moed B: 23.6 at 10:30-11:20
yet a newer version for the preparation drill available!
some changes in the project robot comunication
|look in material>project>preparation drill|
Note the connection rate change from 9600 to 38400 [bps] and the new Drift
For any of you that can get into the lab
|please send me email:|
title: lab entrance
inside: name, id number, username
Today's tirgul is canceled
|Due to the long test.|
Location of reception hour : Taub 601
|Again be sure that you know everything that was in the tirgulim|
receprion hour changed for next week
HW are checked, PPT of IK modified
|Puma matrix had a mistake in it|
|Open material, please bring calculator|
For next tirgul
|Next tirgul should include probabilistic material, please check that you remember |
basic definitions and Bayes theorem
HW 2 qu 4 - find only the workspace
HW2 new due date: 4.5.09
HW2 is now available
|good luck, a new version of the tirgul ppt is in the site.|
if you find mistakes in any of the published material please write me.
|you don't need Atan2.|
Programing: write a code that do the work you don't need to follow all his instructions
sorry for any trouble
this Tue. 11:30-12:30 Attendance mandatory
|if you can't come please send me mail.|
The reason is that I need id and login of each student that do the project
and I don't want it to be sent by mail.
further: we are obliged to material taught in class and HW( including Ronen's explanations)
and only this material. You need to know every thing that was taught or said.
the material that is published doesn't cover it all.
Next Tue. (21.4) first hour of lecture is canceled.
|tutorial and second hour of lecture are planned to be given as usual|
mid term is planned for 19 of May
a scan of programing qu was added
tommorow's reception hour canceled
|due to personal reasons.|
You can talk to me after the tirgul instead. sorry!
| qu 3a the second axis is Y and not X.|
If anyone needs a scan of the MATLAB exercises please let me know
Tutorial 1- corrected version
|some mistakes were found - now a corrected version is uploaded|
For this week tutotial please print the doc file
|(from material section - Tutorial 1)|
Lecture location has changed to Taub 8
Website is now available, good luck
Tomorrow's tutorial is canceled
|As it covers the material of lecture 2.|
