Sparkfun AVC 2011 is over


What happened to Data Bus, you may ask?  One word.

FAIL.

For more detail, add the word "EPIC"

Still more detail:

Heat 1: immediately veered into building
Heat 2: slightly less immediately veered into curb
Heat 3: immediately veered into building

Never made it around the first corner.

Bummer.

But, it was a blast of a time! Met and talked to loads of great people, saw awesome robots, learned a lot, etc.

Congrats to Scott (Team Tobor) for winning again this year!  Congrats to the UAV winner (I was so distracted I have no idea who won, but will edit this post as soon as I find out).

Will post more about my experience soon. Time for (early) bed. I'm pooped.

  2. @trialex: Thanks! I plan to work on it for next year, but at a slower pace. I need to catch up on sleep :)

    There are a lot of questions to answer and problems to solve. Can't leave it unfinished.
