Pico Prize

Thank you to Grace and the judging panel for PA Consulting, part of Cambridge Network, who sent us an enormous envelope – inside which was a small, but perfectly formed Pico! The judges commented on our project:

“Your objectives, although challenging, show the impact you wish to have. I also like that you see this as an interactive approach and not something that is solved in one go.I hope you keep the development and team spirit going”

Zjeremy looks askance

the ARC demo robot has three functioning brains, two (Pi) on WiFi and one on Bluetooth but has not yet rumbled out of the door.. Sensor readings are rather erratic and the head-mounted servo obeys no known code. On the plus side Motors coping with the combined weight and Meccano providing a strong exoskeleton. Also the camera works!
