As i said in a previous log, the robot has been tested by students for two lessons, and it worked.

However, i never took the time to shoot a video about it. Now it's done :

The video isn't that great because OpenShot was not functionnal on my station, neither was KdeEnlive (i'll install a clean Debian soon in place of my OpenSuse that works but has some bugs now and then).

It's programmed with a simple obstacle avoidance algorithm, and it ran not so bad. Of course, there is a huge amount of room for optimization, but this was just a test program i made in 2 minutes.

I need to change a few things on the board, such as the power switch position (currently, the motors run when USB is plugged).

See you in the next log :)
