Milestone 2 Reached!
Today at 6pm, one of our PR2 alpha robots successfully completed Milestone 2 by performing a circuit of 10 plugin goals in just under an hour. It had previously completed the first part of the milestone, which was successful navigation around the office for 26.2 miles (a marathon).The first accomplishment required four days, with about 32 hours of actual robot navigation time.
For this second goal, there were doors that were closed, partially open, open and one that was locked (successfully detected). This was our second attempt, after a first attempt on Friday failed at the ninth plug. The team here worked hard over the weekend and, with the latest failure recovery code, it passed with flying colors.
