  • finished building first prototype remote controller boxes for microtrac
    • still need to add gps and compass functionality to onboard box
    • need to install logic level converter to communicate between 3.3V compass and 5V arduino


Q3 2017

  • started a new revision of the CEB Controller Box CEB Press Controller v17.08
    • Documenting the wiring harnesses for easier fabrication
    • probably going to do a v17.10 to have a more refined version after going through lots of small tweaks on v17.08
    • switching from Cat5 RJ45 connectors to standard (usa only?) automotive trailer connectors
  • begin exploring remote control
    • ordered parts to build hydraulic control box for the next MicroTrac MicroTrac Controller v17.10
    • Matt Droter is working on a GPS RasberryPi. We're working seperately right now but might try to merge work once we both have made some more progress.
  • looked into Ardublock
  • CEB Press v17.08/SCAD Files/

Q2 2017

working on parametric ceb press. allows for different thickness steel to be used. allows for fabricator and user to pick a brick size. allows fabricator to input dimensions of the hydraulic cylinders to be used on the machine.
