We are today working on writing code for our final design. We have been having trouble with turning the robot, because it just keeps spinning in circles, but we will soon have it fixed.

Today, we are inputting our code into the robot after finishing wiring. By the end. Of the day, our robot should be fully prepared for new and more complex codes and movements to be put in. We can’t get ahead do ourselves, though; for now, we are sticking to a line and taking baby steps towards our ultimate goal of the butterfly shape.

Today is the deadline to draw a line for showcasing tomorrow. We have finished robot construction and we now need to input the code and make sure everything is running smoothly.

Tasks today:
Nigel- Putting switch, batteries, & circuit wires in the robot.
Joepy-Working on a line code
Eric-shape measurements
By Friday, our robots will be moving and gathering codes. We will showcase a simple code for the robot to draw a line. The rough draft for the code is shown here.

Arduino

Arduino is the programming software that we will be using to move our robots. It uses a language similar to C++. By transferring the code to the robot, we will move according to the directions written.
