Fadhlan had to present and demo his work

Time for presentation

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

The judges

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

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.

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

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

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 🙂

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 🙂

ProCodeCG Kids Private Robotic Class – 13 Nov 2018

Standard

3 days before the competition! Loads of things to do 🙂

IMG_8661

The letter that make us so proud 😉 Our research 😉

IMG_8659

Today Fadhlan is going to load all those stuff on top of the robot 🙂

IMG_8660

We use velcro to stick the batteries to the robot

IMG_8664

Okay it’s now ready for testing

IMG_8666

We tested ultrasonic sensor, micro servo, button, buzzer and the button, and the motor of course 😉

IMG_8668

IMG_8672

the button working fine

IMG_8673

the button and the ultrasonic and the LED and the buzzer are okay

IMG_8675

Okay the components and the code is working well! Going to do more tests tomorrow! 🙂

ProCodeCG Kids Private Robotic Class – 10 Oct 2018

Standard

Yessss, we’re going to final!!!

IMG_6229

That means after a long day of presentation and demo, Fadhlan still have to work overtime to test and improve the robot to make sure it works perfectly tomorrow 🙂

IMG_6232IMG_6231

And it worked nicely, successfully avoiding every obstacle in its sensor height range

IMG_6234

We tested the robot many times with different obstacles setting, and different source of power too

IMG_6236 IMG_6238

IMG_6240

Yep, finally we’re so ready for tomorrow!
