00:54 <Lucifer_arma> well, I remembered an electrical engineer I know that I haven't asked, and a lady that works in geology here at the school and emailed them both :)

00:59 <ct|kyle> oi Lucifer_arma
01:00 <Lucifer_arma> heya KYLE
01:00 <Lucifer_arma> er, oops
01:00 <Lucifer_arma> damn mac keyboard
01:01 <Lucifer_arma> alright, no more fooling around, we need a plan now! :)
01:01 <Lucifer_arma> I just hit up my physics teacher, and he doesn't want to participate, just wants credit, heh ;)
01:01 <Lucifer_arma> anybody know how to get a mac mouse to quit slowing down?
01:04 <ct|kyle> i hate mac
01:04 <Lucifer_arma> it's what we've got at school
01:04 <ct|kyle> heh
01:05 <Lucifer_arma> problem is, I'm trained for a mouse that doesn't slow down
01:05 <ct|kyle> i'm not sure only used macs a few times
01:05 <spidey> "mouse that slows down" <--wtf?
01:06 <ct|kyle> its a mac <-- WTF
01:06 <Lucifer_arma> spidey, when I get near to where I'm wanting to click, I naturally slow the mouse down myself, right? The mac, figuring I'm getting close, reduces the sensitivity when it sees that to make it easier to hit the target button
01:06 <Lucifer_arma> problem is, my linux box doesn't do that, so I'm not used to it
01:07 <spidey> that's retarded
01:07 <ct|kyle> that's a mac
01:07 <Lucifer_arma> it just sounds retarded, something tells me I'd love it if I were used to it
01:07 <Lucifer_arma> but I"m not, so I hate it
01:08 <Lucifer_arma> what's a general word for drivetrain that's not drivetrain?
01:08 <ct|kyle> its some speed control setting. I herd about it once before
01:08 <Lucifer_arma> something that can apply to rocket engines, propellers, etc.
01:08 <Lucifer_arma> and also electric motors
01:08 <spidey> flywheel? O.o
01:08 <Lucifer_arma> nah, flywheel is a specific device
01:09 <ct|kyle> ya what Lucifer said
01:09 <ct|kyle> shaft?
01:09 <ct|kyle> Drive shaft>
01:09 <Lucifer_arma> no, more general, like motivation, method of motion, that sort of thing
01:09 <Lucifer_arma> to describe a system
01:10 <Lucifer_arma> I'll bet I mentioned it in that thread somewhere
01:10 <ct|kyle> heh
01:10 <ct|kyle> ya
01:10 <ct|kyle> we should not go with 2 wheel
01:11 -!- noob7 is now known as noob7_away
01:11 <Lucifer_arma> why not? The advantage I see to 2 wheels is that if we get on a slope and can't stop, we can just roll down
01:12 <Lucifer_arma> with the right tires, we can bounce and flip and all sorts of stuff and still land upright
01:12 <Lucifer_arma> it'd be like a cat
01:12 <ct|kyle> 3 wheel can be more efficient for gas mileage and power usage. it is also plenty stable but i still think 4 are the best
01:12 <Lucifer_arma> of course, with treads, we could still get near the same thing
01:12 <Lucifer_arma> ah hell, we need to simulate them and see what looks best
01:13 <Lucifer_arma> chances are very good there aren't significant code issues here, so we can still start coding knowing that we're building either wheeled or treaded
01:13 <Lucifer_arma> and we need to build the simulator first anyway :)
01:13 <Lucifer_arma> have you looked at ODE yet?
01:13 <ct|kyle> oh i looked into NASA's open source robot software
01:13 <ct|kyle> i really have not looked at ODE
01:14 <ct|kyle> i just wanted to see other possibilities first
01:14 <Lucifer_arma> there's another one, but I"m having trouble making heads or tails of how to use it, BRL-CAD
01:14 <ct|kyle> http://claraty.jpl.nasa.gov/man/overview/index.php
01:14 <Lucifer_arma> ah, I don't think we can really look at other possibilities without simulating anything :)
01:14 <Lucifer_arma> until then, we're just discussing might-bes
01:15 <ct|kyle> Gps i am fairly sure that will only work on the earth.
01:16 <ct|kyle> the way it is set up. just from what my physics teacher told me.
01:16 <Lucifer_arma> I'm pretty sure about that too, and really the purpose of computing our position is to sanity check what we know from dead reckoning
01:17 <Lucifer_arma> the reason I think we can triangulate on a unit we leave at the base is because we can put two antennas on the base unit
01:17 <ct|kyle> or 3 it would be more acurite
01:17 <Lucifer_arma> it'll be accurate for a distance, we might throw in some extensions to increase the distance
01:18 <Lucifer_arma> right, you get the idea :)
01:18 <ct|kyle> as long as we know the distance between all 2 or 3 we can tell exactly where we are from the base
01:18 <Lucifer_arma> if we can compute our position relative to some fixed point, we can sanity check our dead reckoning

01:19 <Lucifer_arma> obviously having the ability to determine the locations of nearby objects would also be very helpful
01:19 <ct|kyle> maybe i should contact my old physics teacher. He would probably be helpful
01:19 <Lucifer_arma> basic surveying work, really, if we can, as jonathan pointed out, know the precise direction the camera is pointing
01:19 <ct|kyle> Sonar would not work correct
01:20 <Lucifer_arma> radar would work, but I don't have any idea if we can get one small enough that gives enough useful range and has minimal power requirements

01:21 <ct|kyle> if we have enough solar panels we should be fine
01:21 <Lucifer_arma> heh, yeah, but we still have to minimize mass so we can ride a delivery system someone builds :)
01:21 <Lucifer_arma> drive system is close to the word I"m looking for
01:21 <Lucifer_arma> propulsion, that's it
01:22 <ct|kyle> ah
01:23 <ct|kyle> I'm thinking about the landing system that nasa used for mars most recent bot
01:24 <Lucifer_arma> drop it on a pillow?
01:25 <ct|kyle> basically Air balloons surrounding it
01:26 <ct|kyle> we need to have a mechanism to flip it back over, just in case

01:32 <QUARG> hello all
01:32 <ct|kyle> QUARG: oi
01:34 <QUARG> i dont see any talking ;)
01:34 <GodTodd> #last --nolimit
01:34 <armabot> GodTodd: [01:34:38] <QUARG> i dont see any talking ;), [01:33:01] <ct|kyle> QUARG: oi, [01:32:54] <QUARG> hello all, [01:26:59] <ct|kyle> we need to have a mechanism to flip it back over, just in case, [01:25:35] <ct|kyle> basically Air balloons surrounding it, [01:24:44] <Lucifer_arma> drop it on a pillow?, [01:24:17] <ct|kyle> I'm thinking about the landing system that nasa used for mars most recent (50 more messages)
01:34 <ct|kyle> Lucifer_arma: you are also correct about the grease and whatnot, i know once grease is frozen it does not come back into the same forum
01:35 <QUARG> just dont use grease
01:35 <QUARG> use phenolic and bakelite berings
01:35 <GodTodd> don't they use a silicon based lubricant or smth?
01:36 <QUARG> phenolic is a resin based plastic
01:36 <ct|kyle> we really should consider it being an element and not a compound, because heating and cooling makes compounds well into differnt mixtures
01:36 <QUARG> i think that it has a lubricant that is extruded
01:37 <QUARG> by the phenolic which in its self is heat resistant
01:38 <QUARG> i posted a link to the breakdown of the mars rover in the topic
01:38 <ct|kyle> what about cold temperatures. will part of it freeze before anotehr part?
01:38 <ct|kyle> i saw the link
01:39 <QUARG> well the bering seems to be made completely of the same compound race and ball.
01:39 <QUARG> i would have to see how it resists to cold. o and also it is non conductive
01:39 <QUARG> which makes it a good insulator
01:40 -!- tramshed [firstname.lastname@example.org] has quit ["Leaving"]
01:40 <QUARG> as for reversing the rover i was looking at legged bots
01:41 <QUARG> spider like
01:41 <ct|kyle> how not just turn the motors in reverse?
01:41 <QUARG> they were interesting because when it flips over all you have to do is reverse the legs
01:42 <Lucifer_arma> legged bots will make programming way difficult
01:42 <Lucifer_arma> not necessarily out of reach, but really tricky
01:42 <Lucifer_arma> I'd almost prefer to go to a pogo-stick powered bot
01:42 <ct|kyle> i think a lever arm mounted on top of the bot would be easiest to flip it over
01:42 <Lucifer_arma> a two-wheel bot would just move out from wherever it landed :)
01:43 <Lucifer_arma> we can probably achieve nearly the same effect with treads, depending on how we hang the body on the treads
01:43 <QUARG> and if its a wheeld vehicle just make it so that the tires are large enough so that it can run upside dwon
01:43 <QUARG> like a segway
01:43 <ct|kyle> we could use legs that rotate around but mount wheels on them
01:44 <Lucifer_arma> that'll raise our center of mass quite a bit, could affect how we transit terrain
01:44 <QUARG> but wouldnt the lower gravity make it difficult for wheeled vehicles?
01:44 <Lucifer_arma> it does have the advantage of letting us just raise up the bot to go over rough terrain we'd otherwise have to go around
01:44 <QUARG> did you see the bot link i posted?
01:45 <Lucifer_arma> if it's only got two wheels, and they share the axis of rotation, we can make the center of mass lower than the axis of rotation and the body will always be oriented correctly
01:45 <ct|kyle> with gravity being less on the moon are center of gravity will already be higher there than in testing locations
01:45 <Lucifer_arma> center of mass doesn't change, only the force due to gravity :)
01:46 <ct|kyle> Center of gravity
01:46 <QUARG> the only thing that i find unreliable about 2 wheels is that if you get stuck you have no way to offset the center of gravity to get out of the hole
01:46 <ct|kyle> not center of mass
01:46 <Lucifer_arma> that's going to affect friction quite a bit, since friction is directly proportional to the reaction force of the surface
01:46 -!- tramshed [email@example.com] has joined #armagetron
01:46 <QUARG> exacty
01:46 <Lucifer_arma> heh, center of mass, center of gravity, not much difference
01:47 <QUARG> i saw a snake bot that was interesting
01:47 <QUARG> :)
01:47 <Lucifer_arma> in fact, they're the same thing, and will be in the same location here as on the moon as in orbit, etc
01:47 <ct|kyle> i finaly see your 2 wheel idea Lucifer
01:48 <QUARG> but 2 wheels arent very efficient at getting over obsticles
01:48 <Lucifer_arma> no they're not, that's why we need to know what the terrain actually looks like
01:48 <ct|kyle> Sipked wheels
01:48 <QUARG> true
01:48 <Lucifer_arma> the terrain in the photos the apollo guys took looks fine
01:48 <ct|kyle> I sent Nasa a request for information
01:49 <Lucifer_arma> there's also the idea of putting spikes not directly on the wheels, but where we can fold them out when we need it
01:49 <QUARG> spikes lower your contact area and tend to slip more
01:49 <Lucifer_arma> that's true for solid surfaces, the moon is covered by a layer of packed dust
01:49 <ct|kyle> looking at google maps the terrain for Apollo was the flap part of the moon
01:49 <QUARG> on hard surfaces
01:49 <Lucifer_arma> they mostly landed in maries, but it was still dusty
01:49 <Lucifer_arma> lots of pictures of footprints left in the dust :)
01:50 <Lucifer_arma> *marias
01:50 <QUARG> if their real.:)
01:50 <Lucifer_arma> heh
01:50 <Lucifer_arma> I guess we'll have to find that one out, won't we? ;)
01:50 <QUARG> i call shotgun
01:50 <ct|kyle> we need to make the first Lunar web site
01:51 <Lucifer_arma> send up a website on the rover?
01:51 <Lucifer_arma> let people connect to it? ;)
01:51 <ct|kyle> heh
01:51 <ct|kyle> would be a first
01:51 <Lucifer_arma> I was thinking of sending up an arma server and running the afl championship for that season on it
01:51 <Lucifer_arma> at least everybody will have equal pings
01:51 <QUARG> i was wondering about the simulator
01:51 <QUARG> lol
01:52 <ct|kyle> maybe change the quality of an image to 8 bit have it update daily and post it on a site
01:52 <Lucifer_arma> we need to get a simulator that has ideal conditions on a mockup robot and start coding movement and navigation
01:52 <QUARG> are you talking about a physical rover test or in a software?
01:52 <Lucifer_arma> er, yes
01:52 <Lucifer_arma> software first, because we can do that now
01:52 <QUARG> ok then ill let you do that part.
01:52 <ct|kyle> AFL's moon server
01:53 <Lucifer_arma> physical tests using available fields and shit
01:53 <QUARG> dark side of the moon
01:53 <Lucifer_arma> at some point we should be able to secure a lot of funding, when we'll have to worry about building or acquiring access to a good lunar surface simulator
01:53 <ct|kyle> if we start programming and designing we can get founding fairly easly.
01:54 <ct|kyle> but we need to have a solid plan that we can present well
01:54 <Lucifer_arma> quarg: you could work on finding out what materials are available, prices, specs (temperature range, thermal expansion, density, shear, etc)
01:54 <ct|kyle> then thee founding will come
01:54 <Lucifer_arma> yep, working on it right now
01:54 <Lucifer_arma> well, the funding has to be 90% private
01:54 <QUARG> will do
01:55 <QUARG> did you see how much the mars rover devel cost?
01:55 <ct|kyle> QUARG: what is it?
01:55 <QUARG> were taling billions
01:55 <Lucifer_arma> Quarg: collect the information into a google spreadsheet and share it with us. When you create it, ping us for email addresses. Kyle and I are already in there with stuff
01:55 <Lucifer_arma> yeah, but that's in nasa dollars
01:55 <QUARG> lol
01:55 <ct|kyle> exaclty,
01:55 <QUARG> divided by 100
01:56 <Lucifer_arma> the only thing nasa's really expert at is spending money
01:56 <QUARG> im not sure were this google spreadsheet is
01:56 <Lucifer_arma> docs.google.com
01:56 <ct|kyle> do you have a google e-mail?
01:56 <Lucifer_arma> if you have a gmail account, you can use that
01:56 <QUARG> nope
01:56 <Lucifer_arma> I think you can register for a google docs account with your regular email address
01:56 <Lucifer_arma> gmail gives pop access, though :)
01:57 * Lucifer_arma uses gmail for his domain email services
01:57 <ct|kyle> i like my google homepage. the only way i check my e-mail
01:59 <QUARG> bah they dont support safari
02:01 <Lucifer_arma> they say they don't, but I've used it in safari
02:01 <Lucifer_arma> I'd recommend tossing firefox anyway, they support it very well
02:02 <ct|kyle> ive seen it crash IE

02:08 <ct|kyle> Get firefox
02:09 <Lucifer_arma> they didn't use to have that error page :(
02:16 <QUARG> i hate firefox
02:17 <QUARG> ill start by compiling the list on paper
02:17 <ct|kyle> hmm maybe i can make my server uesful
02:18 <ct|kyle> i still have to load it, but...
02:18 <ct|kyle> it is setting here inactive
02:28 <QUARG> which server? web server?
02:29 <QUARG> we have to consider system redundacy into the equasion

02:35 <ct|kyle> luke*
02:35 <luke-jr> wtf does that mean?
02:36 <ct|kyle> that the person is a noob and thinks that it is styball in which they wanted respanwend
