Collab Log #012: Reviewing CAD model

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!

Kit Log #053: Drive sys and arm – guides, sheets, projects

Today we helped to set up the drive system sheet for Beck to fill in with the guide description. This involved dividing the steps into parts, and adding the images. The CAD models with the screws added helped tremendously to recount them all and add them too.

In addition to this, the super bright lights product description was added, and reviewed the arms sheet while starting on those pieces. The idea for the pieces will be to display it on a page where the 3D model is seen beside the quantity and print instruction. Additionally, we want to add in an AR quick look view, using the .usdz format. Step by step!

Kit Log #052: Brain Kit landing page

Today we finished the brain kit landing page. It contains all the info in one place about the brain kit, what it does, and how to get started. Go check it out! This will be our template for the other kit landing pages as well.

The progress started two days ago (March 21), but only finished today (March 23) because of figuring out how to make the gallery work. The brain kit links to its page on the store, and now it is complete. Actually, upon writing this, just realised that the 3d models are missing. They will likely go in to the guide page.

 

Collab Log #011: Virtual meet

Collab Log #011: Virtual meet

Our first virtual meeting! This week we went over button parsing for the Operator Interface, and discussed about the RPi mount for the pan-tilt and IR camera. We had a few people from the uOttawa group connect, it was good to test out the technology. We used Jitsi Meet for the video call, it is open source!

Kit Log #050: First blink images created

We made the images for the first blink guide. This update seems tiny, but it plays a big part in that guide.
