Over and over I have found myself distracted by the allure of adding another sensor to my robot.
My recent focus has been to enable my robot to recharge without my assistance. This doesn’t require any more sensors. The current hurdle is to devise a mounting for the electrical contacts on my GoPiGo3 in the exact position needed to allow the bot to back onto a modified iRobot recharge base.
Rather than solve that problem, my mind started thinking about how neat the DI IMU would be, and what I could do with it. The more I learned about the IMU, the more I realized using the IMU is not just a “slap it on and go” thing.
I need to stay focused, for my robot’s sake.
