First test of the competition. The plan was to do the gate in order to put the qualifications behind us.
2 minutes before leaving for the test, two thrusters stopped working (Welcome to Robosub just like Jay said). We are going to figure something out, we had a test pool yesterday and we didn’t change the Software or the Electrical, we’re gonna see…
At first, we had problems receiving the data from the pinger. But the problem was quickly solved.
We had a very good signal and the noise from the thrusters are merely impacting the ping. However, the phase shift that we calculated was not accurate.
We are going to do further testing and check if we are able to get better data from the hydrophones.
The next test is at 10am15 at our time, we will keep you up to date!
