Retrieve

A project log for Pretty Useless Machine

Fling the thing with a catapult, find it, bring it back, repeat.

Now it is possible to throw an object using the catapult--details here.

The current state of the project allows me to throw the "thing" using the catapult (by pushing a button remotely) and have the robot (standing by in ready mode) chase and retrieve the thing. The robot then backs up and drops the object.

Obstacle avoidance and getting back to the catapult flipper have yet to be implemented.
