This Meeting:
The robotics lab will be open for you to work.  We are going to continue work on the robot mascot.  For more info on this one check

Controller Team:
I’m still working out the dimensions, so bear with me.  In the meantime make sure you have the latest version of Sketchup.  Use the following link.  I’ll upload the files as soon as I finish taking the measurements.  I’ll use wireframes.

If you remember, bring in the other XBee.  We are going to attempt to reflash it to get it back up and operational.  I want to have it handy in case we get the chance to experiment with the waldo suit.

We will start the work on the torso next.  I should have the pole we marked cut and painted black by next meeting.  We still have to come up with a good design for the head.  We’ll need to house the XBee with the new breakout board as well as the camera.  The torso section will carry the power supply, cooling system, and Arduino board.

Comms Team:
If we could come up with a test plan for next meeting now that we’ve made some headway that would be cool.

I’m creating a Fritzing drawing in order to keep track of all the wiring.  Use the link below if you want to download Fritzing.

Maker Mentor:
Andres Torres

What to Bring:
Something to take notes.  Your robotics project if you have one.  Laptop as well if you have one.
