Unfortunately just before making a demo video, i have burn some piece of Hardware! :(
We are going to replace them, we have buy a new PC104 board on ebay, we will replace the defects components on our motion board, hope this will be done soon.

The demo video should have show the robot in autonomous mode (booting from DiskOnChip), controlled by an IR remote.

Wizmotion SW have progressed a little and seems to give very interesting results.

First test of our robot

This summer, we have made the first integration and tests on our robot.
For now we have:
- a carter with motors and wheels
- a back-plane PCB (to plug motors, encoders, power supply, and PC104)
- a WizMove-2 board (4 layers PCB with 3 HCTL1100 and one Xilinx)
- a PC104 main board (i586@100MHz)
- a basic embedded distrib
- Wizmove2 drivers and command tools

Whith these we have successfully test motion control.

There is still a lot of work... :(
