Time for presentation

IMG_4001

And the robot needed some tinkering to make it work again because Fadhlan had built it from scratch

IMG_4002

The judges

IMG_4007 IMG_4008

One of the judges: Pak Janto V. Sulungbudi, lend us 18650 awt batteries, he helped installing the batteries too 🙂

IMG_4009

Still not working, must be the wiring or bad wires

IMG_4010

So we had to delay the demo until we make this work 😀

IMG_4011

We did everything: change the power supply, add it, connect it in parallel, in serial, divide them and all, still not working. Everything on the breadboard that connected to Arduino works, but the wheels just wouldn’t.

IMG_4013

We checked the wheels and the DC motors by giving power directly and they worked properly. we suspect the motor controller but we didn’t bring any spares.

IMG_4014

We worked for hours. After lots cups of coffee and tea 😀

6ff7b061-f3a2-43af-8641-897d3df048aa

We did soldering, and unsoldering, and then it left us with one possibility: wires connecting to the dc motors. And after we changes them, it works! 😀 Fadhlan glue gunned the connecting wires to secure them and apparently it burned the wires and make them stop working (next time no glue-gunning connecting wires!)

Back to the judges

c360b605-0542-4326-8fdd-688198f8351a

Ok the robot worked nicely, only the ultrasonic sensor didn’t give any readings. Must be the wires 🙂 But at least now we know what the problem is 🙂

10785404-4c46-471e-9ff1-c2b1fcb92b8d

Judges gave suggestions on what to do to upgrade the robot, and we have to make weekly reports. This is a very valuable experience and a great honour for ProCodeCG to be a part of this awesome event. We’ll be working on this for a year, if we make it to the next stage, we’ll see 🙂

IMG_2970

IMG_2974

Yaaay ready for a test 🙂

IMG_2975

Working nicely, never hit any obstacles 😉

Ultrasonic Piano project

IMG_2937

Traffic light with pedestrian button project 🙂

IMG_2950

IMG_2962

Aidia has lots of ideas including to make an automatic door for her hamsters 😀
