Software Makes for Slow Updates

Lots of software development of late. Floyd got a nice speed control loop working in the micro controller which alleviates fence post bouncing the in the future. He also updated the board to output all the sensor information. The end result is a lot of updates on my end that are rather dull but quite necessary.

The global waypoint follower is also behaving correctly now along with a minimalistic world model to profile speeds when obstacles are the in the path. No avoidance behavior yet but at least the robot is attempting to avoid destroying itself by slowing down. Someone once told me speed kills. Very apt for runaway robots.

Hopefully videos will arrive soon.
