Our control-input to steer the motors was through a Python-terminal
We placed a temporary emergency-stop on top of the trashcan to cut the power. In the future we will use a piezo-element to detect and trigger emergency-stop when someone is hitting the trashcan.
We did test go:toTrash inside at first to get ea feel about how the platform worked.
It worked great, so we tried to force it and learn its limits.
We also did some testing outside. go:toTrash also met a collegue on it’s way, a compression-trashcan.
We also did some testing on the paving stone, we discovered that go:toTrash were more stable on the pavement than we first thought.
