The current week was all about connecting:
Connect the Robot Power Supply and connect with people.
But lets first take a step back:
A civil engineering student, who I met at the Erasmus dinner, invited me to join a hiking trip in the south of the Island together with agroup of young people from the island:
On Sunday then, Mi5 Student Joan from Vic arrived and we moved to our appartment.
Joan will be staying here for 4 weeks, giving support on the first steps here.
Delta Robot – Connecting Cables
At the beginning of this week, we did some progress on the electrical setup of our B&R Delta
We setup an automatic Camera to observe the development:
It will take some more days to have the full setup, however we are satisfied with the progress we achieved. And despite that, it was a lot of fun!
Engineering Students – Connecting People
Today there was a meeting with the director and subdirector of the engineering faculty.
We were given a chance to present the project to a lot of students. Some of them got interested to join the project right away, so we will set up meeting for the next days.
Public Transport – Connecting Places
In Las Palmas we have been moving exclusively by bus so far. The so-called “guaguas” are well established here and offer a lot of lines, taking you to every part of the city.
– When carrying a 2 m cable channel inside a bus, some people will hold on to it, expecting to hold a stable bar
– Strangers will wish you a nice day everywhere
– Pointing out the future role of classical mechanical engineering will not put a smile on every students face
