Just for fun, Colony Scout pulls a train of three Colony III robots. Running an obstacle avoidance algorithm, the Scout drives slowly to avoid tipping the cargo. Jackknifing prevention needs a little work, but the algorithm used was designed for the Scout driving by itself.
The scanning sonar turret is down this week as I figure out the new Allegro microstepping IC, but the sonar is active -- it just looks forward.
Scout sports a new anodized red chassis. I'm toying with the idea of painted frames with different colors to help users quickly tell the robots apart. They'll all have names too!
