Project Maverick has gained a new pair of eyes! A new ZX gesture sensor from Sparkfun has been successfully tested and is getting ready to be implemented into Project Maverick's Autopilot System. This will allow Maverick to quickly and efficiently find obstacles and doorways before encountering them. Project Maverick and its updated Autopilot System will be featured at the Central Valley Science and Engineering Fair on March 17th from 6pm to 7pm. Please visit here for more information.
Project Maverick was presented at the Fresno Mini Makers Fair in the segment "Meet the Maker"
