My Robot's Donut Drifting

In case you are wondering why I did not updated my blog for almost a week, this is what I was doing...



If you have watched Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift, you still remember the scene where Han was driving his Mazda RX7 doing a doughnut around a hot chick's car and win the phone number? (I'm not sure whether Impak Maksima has the same scene or not *roll eyes*



Well, my robot can do it too, but without the hot chicks and some smoke...



Actually this is not how I program it to be, it just behaved on its own. Perhaps there's short circuit in its brain that makes it gone crazy (pun intended).

As there is only 3 more weeks to hand up the report, and troubleshooting the circuit is very time consuming, so I...

Redraw the PCB layout...

Re-fabricate the PCB...

Re-drill hundreds of holes on the new PCB...

Solder hundreds of pins and legs...

Re-test the new circuit (still having some problems thou)...

And the best part is,

I did all this with a swelling eye which I have difficulties to fully open it and my visionary is blur.

FYP is really killing me slowly.

Oh, and by the way, the new circuit is a lot tidier than the jungle you seen in the picture :P
