Couple of new videos. This time I am running the FRDM-TFC library demo code written by Eli Hughes without any change at all-- successfully on my car. I have had the 0 ohm R24 res replaced with a higher one thanks to the soldering skills of David DiCarlo! The first video highlights demo modes 0 through 3: Car demos - YouTube Demo 0- test buttons and switches Demo 1- test servo Demo 2- test motors Second, I was able to get my little o-scope (xprotolab) to capture the camera analog out-- here: Camera testing - YouTube No major coding done but I understand the library and ports on the boards much better now.   Still haven't resolved the 'whining' apparent when I enable the H-bridge but I will try a few things this week-- it is possible it is harmless. Next steps, buffering camera data then on to control loops! Daniel Oh, I was also able to get the serial port working while code was running so I could get some dynamic feedback.

This is the 8th year for the China national finals of Freescale Cup intelligent car racing.  In parallel to this years China regional we are hosting the champion teams from regions around the world in a winner take all racing showdown. Today kicked off day one of the event which is mostly practice.   But first, a little international team building and a tour to Sun Island in Harbin, China. (Photo courtesy of Peter Fang) (Photo courtesy of DamarisOchoa) Followed by some down to business practice where we had our first glimpse of all the teams.   All the worldwide teams look very strong and should be a very competitive match-up.

One option for mounting the FRDM-KL25Z Freescale Freedom board to the car chassis. [no audio] Important Note:  Secure the wires coming from your motors!!  (I used a zip tie in the video)  If they are allowed to flex at the joint where the wire connects to the motor, it will eventually fail.
