  • 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.
    • Over this week, I mostly focused on moving from simulated data to actual testing of the code for human identification. I worked on the wiring and connection between raspberry pi and thermal camera, configured the raspberry pi to allow my code to be run, and initialized i2c connection with the sensor with Akshat. The thermal camera now outputs 8×8 thermal information correctly and I further interpolated it to allow for 32×32 thermal information.
  • 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 on schedule. We have a working frontier exploration, a working obstacle avoidance, and a working thermal image output that identified heat signature separately as planned for the demo.
  • What deliverables do you hope to complete in the next week?
  • I plan to modify the code to reduce false positives and false negatives since the working thermal output indicate that human thermal signatures are not in high thirties degree celsius but rather low twenties, close to no human presence. I further plan to write the publisher and subscriber node to connect thermal cameral outputs to the ros network.
