First Meeting of the Semester

The team met for the first time this semester last night. We mostly discussed the progress we have made on the frame, which should be complete by next week, and the layout of the electronics inside the pelican case.

After being plauged by errors while trying to get last year's vehicle up and running Cusch discovered that the computer is fine but believes the problem is in the thrusters' power board. This is good news and means that we should be able to start using the computer to work on code.

The link included with this post is one that was forward to me by Cush on a quality underwater camera. Because of budget and our current design we will be using last year's cameras but might upgrade before the competition if the funding comes through.
