Over the holidays, we mainly worked on the hardware. We further developed the simas and started our gripping system for the pots. With the software, we got our pathplanning working and are now trying to make it drive. For pathplanning, we use ROS with Navstack to estimate and drive our path with a live map. You can see the pathplanning in the video. For the hardware, we have come up with a concept to grab the plants. First we shape them with a „shovel“. This moves to the point where the plants are standing, picks them up and brings them into shape. Then a gripper arm comes from above and grabs all the plants that have been put into a certain shape. This ensures that the plants are moved efficiently.
