Motion Control Project
Members:
++ Masa Nakamura

Website: https://openlab.citytech.cuny.edu/eesl/2016/10/22/computing-for-motion-control-project/

Project activities:
++ Setup Raspberry PI servers: forward, vibration, compost
++ Aquire Static IP Addresses for PIs
++ Setup wireless network
++ install vlc
++ Install phidget library
++ Programming for motions responding sensor inputs

Current status:
++ Fix wireless issue
++ Fix OpenCV installation errors
++ Check All PIs MAC address (both ethernet and wireless)
++ Ask CIS to register city tech wireless network.
