We met with some of the uOttawa group and discussed the CAD model and the object detection training model. It was interesting, for the object detection model, there are some out there, like this one on kaggle for garbage detection. If we can build on this, it will help get ahead faster.
The Garbage Classification Dataset contains 6 classifications: cardboard (393), glass (491), metal (400), paper(584), plastic (472) and trash(127).
The CAD model is ready to be printed! We have a printer here, and this seems quite like teleportation. We will begin printing it asap (waiting on some PTFE oil before starting a long print).
Beck is still working on the drive system instructions, but no progress was made since last update.
The uOttawa team has their presentation coming up soon! Thank you to their effort this semester!
