Since the leak and thruster failures last week, the team has gotten SubjuGator 7 back up and running. The team has been busy developing and debugging missions for the RoboSub competition. The videos below showcase our current progress on several fronts. Our vision system has been working very well, even in varying outdoor lighting conditions (fitting for the San Diego coast). Hopefully all of our outdoor testing will be advantageous come competition time.
The first video demonstrates template identification, visual servoing and our ball dropper mechanism executing during the bin mission and the pneumatic grabber mechanism executing during the wreath mission.
The second video demonstrates our 6 DOF control capabilities as well as a refined grabber mission and the shooter mission utilizing our pneumatic torpedo launcher.
