Yay our PIC kit arrived this week. We started soldering the circuit. Joe has been working on the chassis. We did get it running.....in a circle. We figured out that it was not balanced, the batteries were on one side, and the wheels need to be bigger to get our vehicle higher off the ground. However it did randomly dodge all obsticles!

Next week we want to finish the soldering and maybe start programming.

We have just finished soldering out PIC board and mounted the motors. We also installed PIC Logicator and Martin started learning about programming.

Unfortunately we have run out of time this week, but next week we want to test it with some simple programs. Hopefully it will all be working well.
