There are moments when we wish we could roll back the clock and take all the sadness away, but we have the feeling that if we did, the joy would be gone as well.
The first task taken by the team will be the mandatory Autonomous Navigation Challenge. Nala Heroes is to go from one waypoint to another. The team will predict the first waypoint before the first gate and the second waypoint after the second gate. The team also uses image processing algorithm to calculate the midpoint between the two gates. The boat is designed to prefer image processing over waypoint navigation, thus if the boat sees the two gates clearly, the boat will use image processing for navigation.
After research on the third mission is done, testing is then carried out, starting with testing out the hydrophone then testing the drone on land. The results obtained from the testing were very satisfying. Although the results were well, to this date, the team rarely tests the drone on the boat to prevent unnecessary problems from happening to the drone.
