This is a big day - the GraffitiBot made its maiden voyage!

This was just the first attempt at programming an autonomous route that would test the steering and the main drive.

It is literally a dry run, there are no pumps or even reservoir on board.

I could spend some time to make it look more impressive and get some better camera angles, but I need to start working on the hydraulics - the nozzles need a lot of work, not to mention the software.

Getting this far has taken a lot of work, but see it run is what is all about.
