from: May 17th 00 at 3:00pm
with: Alex, Sunil, Chanop, Chris, Thomas, Matt, Peter, Samer
Status on individual activities
Peter is working on the Pan-Tilt socket interface and supporting Chanop on the Motion Controller software and hardware.
Chanop is implementing his Thruster Controller software in C and
integer for 68332 execution. Initial testing of Thruster control can start today. The motor orientation when inserted into the case determines spin direction and efficiency of operation.
Thomas reported on Jordan's progress; accelerometer offset has been used to reduce the velocity drift, 1m/30seconds displacement error after using training data, ground truth is noisy, the compass error model is being developed.
Sunil's Operator Interface is being expanded to construct and transmit Pan/Tilt commands to
the sub and receive and decode the new Telemetry Router state packets. Javadoc has been used to create HTML documentation of the Operator Interface module.
Chris has been maintaining overnight scripts for re-generating the docsrc module documentation. Chris suggested a sequence of tests to carry out on Thruster Control.
Matt has been finishing his paper for ACRA.
Next Meeting: 1500 Wednesday, May 24th
New Action Items
Peter to chase up replacement parts for the Siliconix device.
Chanop to document the experiments he wants to carry out using kambara.
Previous Action Items
