Plan

I will begin working with David to combine his MIDI file converting code with my robot. 

Procedures

I will connect my xylophone-playing robot and run David’s MIDI file converting code through Arduino and Processing software. 

Progress

We were able to upload the code onto the Arduino board and check if it would work. Currently, the code is not functioning perfectly as intended because it is unable to take a MIDI file data and have the robot play it. 

Problems

For next week, I will continue working with David to make his MIDI file converting code compatible with my robot.
