  • What did you personally accomplish this week on the project? Give files or photos that demonstrate your progress. Prove to the reader that you put sufficient effort into the project over the course of the week (12+ hours).
    • I installed and set up ROS Melodic and went through ROS Tutorials. The ROS was installed on Ubuntu 18.04, which was run on VirtualBox.
    • We further filled in the details of our proposed design in preparation of the design presentation next week and the execution of our design.
  • Is your progress on schedule or behind? If you are behind, what actions will be taken to catch up to the project schedule?
    • Our progress is slightly behind since we delayed ordering the parts because we want to meet with the TAs after we finish our detailed design of the project to ensure that the specifications provided by the parts we decided on is sufficient to fulfill the requirements. We plan on conducting simulations before we implement so delay ordering the parts should not affect our schedule.
  • What deliverables do you hope to complete in the next week?
    • We plan to meet with the TA and the professor with our detailed design to settle down on our purchases of the parts. I also plan to decide on the path planning algorithm for autonomous navigation and start the implementation of the motion planning for an unknown goal.
