Using Atmel's START and Framework, the drivers are pretty much complete. Some tweaking may be needed, but for now I can get all the inputs to see something and all the outputs to wiggle.
The application code, though going much more slowly than I had hoped, is coming along. I have code to scan an area with the Pan/Tilt and read from a couple of the sensors in the HERO Array. I hope the have the remaining sensors in the array completed in the coming days. Code will be updated in GitHub here: https://github.com/wlynt3/HERO
The last leg to complete is the communications interface between the sensor array and the robotics platform. Realistically, I doubt this will be done in time for the conclusion of this segment of the contest, but I'm having a lot of fun with the project (and I can't bear to have an uncompleted project on my desk) so I'll definitely see this through to completion. Stay tuned for more updates!
