Image of Just Ducky’s MoonBots Robot

Fan mail from neighbor, Sarah, six and a half years old.

Over the past few days Team Just Ducky has made progress on our robot and programming. We have been able to write sub VI’s to help our robot navigate successfully across the table. We had some problems figuring out how to use LabVIEW but a local FRC team helped us figure out some kinks in our program.  For example in LabVIEW it reads the rotation sensor slightly different from NXTG. Our robot also includes most of the things in our proposal and can climb craters/ridges with success. We have yet to start programming the actual missions but our robot is functioning awesome. However, the NXT plug in we have for LabVIEW is really buggy and doesn’t run things quite as consistently as we do in NXTG.  Because of this, we are going to program in NXTG for lack of a better option. We might try a different version of NXT LabVIEW to see if that increases accuracy and efficiency. We are waiting for our additional sensors to arrive.
