Robot Firefighter Portugal 2015

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, just decided to share this here.

Me and some friends at the robotics club participated on the robot firefighter contest here at Portugal.
I was kinda unexpected, had to fill in for a team that drop out and my friends that went on the other team didn't have much time because of exams too :/

They used a Tiva for the robot and programmed it in CCS using Tivaware but unfortunately they could not finish some parts of the code because of the time.
During the year I thought them how to use the Tiva and I assisted them with the lower level code (made some timer capture libraries from which I made sonars and color sensor API and made a driver for the DRV8833 motore driver) since they were short on time for the contest.

I went with a STM32F0 board just because I felt like it and why not use a board that you only blinked a LED before when you just had 3.5 days to start from scratch to a contest (wouldn't be fun making always the same thing) - and maybe it was so they didn't complain that the robots were dupes (that are not allowed complete software and hardware copies).
