The past week has been spent learning the various software packages provided by Prof. Olson. These include Vis, a java package for outputting graphics, and the uorc java controls. The example program allows one to control the motor controllers on the uorc with a joystick. For those who forgot, the uorc is the board I have been working on since I got here. I have also been looking into the CAN protocol. Hope to implement that sometime this month (although how I will test it is still an unsure thing).
