R1v2 – Rooter Version 2 – Worklog part 1

Due to some last-minute hacking trying to fix rooter’s boards the day before my dissertation demo, and some really really bad connections in between the different boards, I’m now rebuilding and replacing most of the boards. I have decided to keep the regulator board and possibly the sensor board, but everything else on v2 is going on a single piece of stripboard.

This allows me to do away with one of the microcontrollers, and the (very troublesome) connection in between the main board and stepper driver board, and should hopefully leave me with a working mouse!

Here are some WIP pictures from tonight:

I’ll be posting more pictures tomorrow, and a report from the UK MicroMouse Championships at the weekend!
