Day 4 out of 5, and everything seems to be coming together. Multiple purchases were made today, including bilge pumps, waterproof connectors, and ballast materials. Also, the motor controller board passed all tests. Therefore, the final assembly for the board can begin. A charger for the lithium polymer batteries was obtained and used to charge them. A few issues with the XML code was resolved. Finally, high-frequency polling of the AHRS was achieved through sending attitude info to the GUI. Bidirectionality was fixed and command response was setup. With a multitude of tasks completed, the team needed to start focusing on the report. Each member was given a different section to write with the deadline of tomorrow.
One day left. This week has been productive so far, and we plan to keep up the momentum for the last day.
