Progress on Programming!

Along with a new semester, a new boat, and a new team, some new code is needed. Nick Shiell, and Zachary Faulkner are stepping up to the plate and writing it. The biggest changes this year will be the switch to RoS (Robot Operating System), changing the navigation method, and working with an updated wind sensor design. All of which is rather exciting!

While the switch to RoS will have a decent amount of overhead, our programmers believe the pay off will be well worth it, as RoS is much more suited to working with the SailBot, alongside all the coming updates in the electronics and the software.
