Programming Epuck – Part 2

HAVE TO DO THE FOLLOWING:

  • ALGORITHM with ENERGY and DATA ( tested on real epuck ) – END OCTOBER
  • DYNAMIC ALGORITHM – END NOVEMBER

    • TESTED on REAL EPUCK: END DECEMBER


Part 2:

  • continue the unresolved issues in part 1
  • install ePic2 : ePic2 is a complete framework to command the e-puck within Matlab ( was suggestet not to use this as we can send the data using UART: need to study this)
  • UPDATE ALGORITHM (DEADLINE : END OCTOBER)

    • ENERGY and DATA
    • since our robots have moved to the new lab, we can’t really test it now rather have to wait until mid october once we have moved to the new building.

Part 1:

  • tutorial 1 & 2 : linking and compiling ( generating .hex to be transfered to e-puck robots)
  • tutorial 1 & 2: transfer to e-puck ( yet to be tested upon jon’s approval)
  • swarm beacon : linking and compiling
    • update sound.c
    • question on centroid ( answered)
    • other related issues from the code: epuckcentroid.mcp, .mcs, .mcw and the generated sound values files ( ??? ) – old and irrelevant files. just ignore or comment

Since we cannot really tested with real e-puck yet, listed are the tutorials that need to be completed by next week before updating the algorithm.

  • Tutorial 1: very simple LEDs blinking – compiled
  • Tutorial 2: LEDs blinking (pause with timer)- compiled
  • Tutorial 3: selector reading + LEDs – compiled
  • Tutorial 4: send selector position via Bluetooth (simplified method) – compiled – IMPORTANT :
    • issue: pic30-gcc does not recognize standard C keywords (void, return..etc)…..WHY? – solved
  • Tutorial 5: proximity reading with interrupts + LEDs – compiled
  • Tutorial 6: motor speed controlled depending on front proximity sensor values
