Weeklog for Week 5: January 29 to February 04


Finally got all the parts, soldered the adapter and installed Valetudo on my robot. This took a while, because it has a complicated over-the-network installation process, even though you need to plug in a USB stick. So I tried putting everything on the stick, and once I had done that correctly, it worked very easily.
I'm very happy with it and recommend you do the same!

Built a movable shelf. We don't have a lot of space in our basement, so this shelf is fitted into the room and can be moved everywhere without falling over

I finally did some recreational programming again, and I feel so refreshed. The thing I programmed was a maze generator: it creates a graph (right now, only a grid graph, but would work with any), then gives the edges random weights and constructs a maximum spanning tree. This means you can go from any node to any other node through exactly one path.

Other than that, not much.
