Some progress in electronics

Past couple of weeks were not as productive as I hoped.

Software development was a bit stalled due to difficulties with the image processing, but there is some progress on other fronts. Namely SmartFusion2 with its 484 pins has been physically assessed and during next week I will be heavily developing schematics for the tracking system. And I have started using MGC cad software. Its a bit old fashioned and not really to my taste, but its still quite powerful, so it should be interesting.

Motor control has been fully developed. Last thing that should be tested is the inertia that the motor should be able to coupe with. But from the software point of view its just a couple of constants like acceleration speed and frequency of updates to be changed in the process.

The electronics team has also become bigger, so the work should go faster from now on.
