GCC Rover M18 - The Design
Great news! We have been accepted for PiWars 2019 and in nothing other than the Advanced category!
It seems that our ability to make unique designs and make a rover ready and on time for two competitions
with (some) success in overall score brought us a place. There were over 150 applications
and Mike and Tim (the organisers of the PiWars competition) had to pick 30-odd competitors for the first day
(Schools and Clubs) and similar amount for the second day (Beginners, Intermediate and Advance category competitors).
So, getting there wasn't a small feat!
This time we'll try to attempt something which nobody else did before. And it requires lots of engineering
and programming effort. Also, this time we have extra members to help us with it.
Luckily, some of our existing code (and hardware) is at our disposal, so not everything has to be made from scratch.
It is going to be new, different, challenging... It might even deserve a code name this time (hey, team, wake up!)...
But for now it is just a next rover, next generation rover or simple M18!
