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!

Don't mind the song, I was feeling gangsta :-)
