I'm doing some control theory design work at the moment. Different to my usual hardware R&D but still fun. I'm surprised at how much I remember from university about PID
controllers and how to tune them, although I did brush up a few years back when I was contracted to UPS
company. Seeing Machines has close links to the robotics lab at the ANU
so I've found some people I can bounce ideas off, although I think our requirements are low enough that we can avoid having to get too funky with our design.
The beautiful Martin and Mel
are back from their long trip
, yay!!! They got me a "Beaver believer" hat... hehe.
I have a bunch of Google mail invites. If anyone wants one, email me
. I hate web mail, but the Gmail interface makes it bearable.
Turns out that Dad got to drive the new Audi RS6
at Mallala aswell. With specs like 0-100KPH in 4.7 sec it's quite a beast.
