A couple of photos of Phoebe resembling (to me at least) a dead octopus.  On the top left of the PCB, you can see the new regulator – she’ll no longer run off a battery bank; instead the regulator is fed directly from the LiPo.  On the bottom-right of the PCB, the additional I2C wires heading underneath. Oh, and the camera wire…

…With the demise of the battery bank, as you can see from this underside shot, there’s now somewhere to put the ultrasonic range finder and camera for vertical and horizontal motion tracking respectively.

These updates were due to be for Chloe with her 4-core B2, but due to a total lack of forethought, it can’t be done: the B2 is too big to fit between the top and bottom plates so it needs to go on top;  the LiPo is also too big to fit between the top and bottom plates, so it needs to go underneath.  Which leaves nowhere to put the new sensors. D’oh.  Chloe is packed away again, pending the arrival of the A2.
