Last night a new Noisebridger, Ryan (mumble), lent me his MAXsonar EZ-4,
which he says has a long, thin sensing envelope. I made a header for it
to fit onto my test board, but didn't get any farther than that. He'd
like it back in a week or so, which seems plenty of time to evaluate it.
I'm hoping it senses better at distance than the EZ0 (or EZ1, I forget)
that we currently have; if so I'll buy a few of those to put into the
I have made progress on the armature, thanks to major poking &
assistance from Skory. I need to sew 3 more motor leads and make a
header cable, then it will be testable. Initially I'll probably write
some run-each-motor-in-turn code.
1. I've got a friend in from out of town for this next week and will
really only be able to work on this on Sunday this week. Mike & Leo,
any chance you guys can make it then?
2. My USB-TTL cable isn't in the Cyborg box and I didn't see it at home,
does anyone know where it might be?
