from: May 24th 00 at 3:00pm
with: Sunil, Chanop, Chris, Jordan, Peter
Status on individual activities
Peter is developing Task, Select and Inter-Process Communications common modules for use in VxWorks.
Chanop is implementing his Thruster Controller software in C and
integer for 68332 execution. Thruster Controller software testing is waiting for the Kambara PSU noise to be reduced. Chanop's experiment plan for May- June was distributed. Stereo frame grabbing software development is continuing in Linux.
Jordan reported that execution of Terence's Kalman Filter was unstable after 2 iterations. Simpler simulations can be debugged to determine the cause. The sensor model is almost complete.
Sunil's Operator Interface constructs and transmits Pan/Tilt commands to
the sub and receives and decodes the new Telemetry Router state packets.
Chris has been investigating noise filtering on the PSU. The Simulink version of his controller is now working.
Next Meeting: 1500 Wednesday, May 31st
New Action Items
Clean the pool in preparation for Kambara experiments.
Test the new leak fix in the bottom tube.
Peter to implement Battery voltage sensing, leak detector reading and simple State Estimation.
Chanop to develop safety software to avoid damaging the motor circuitry.
Previous Action Items
Peter to chase up replacement parts for the Siliconix device. Dave Wettergreen is pursuing parts in USA.
Chanop to document the experiments he wants to carry out using kambara. Brief plan has been prepared and passed around for comment.
Some items to do:
Purchase vent for shed
Paint new cart
Robotics Project at the ANU Robotic Systems Laboratory
