Let the work begin ...

At 8am on Sunday morning, Adam and Jerker arrived at Edinburgh airport for the Integration Week in Glasgow. Malcolm, Johannes and Thomas picked them up to give the two from KTH a tour around Edinburgh and the Fringe festival afterwards. After arriving in Glasgow, Jerker and Adam moved into their hostel and the work on Suaineadh started in the afternoon with a meeting where the schedule of the following week was discussed. The evening was spent in the city centre of Glasgow after strolling through the movie set of Brad Pitt's new movie 'World War Z' which is shot in Glasgow at the moment.

Today began early when Thomas picked up Jerker and Adam from the hostel to show them their way to the University of Glasgow. The whole morning was then spend to figure out the best set-up to arrange the different electronic components in CHAD (Central Hub And Daughters). After this was established, Adam and Jerker where working on assembling the electronics for a first functionality test while Malcolm, Johannes and Thomas where dealing with the issue on how to mount the electronic components inside CHAD. At the end of the day we even managed it to take a picture with one of the cameras :). For tomorrow, it is planned to manufacture the cables between the different subsystems and fabricate the brackets to mount the components inside CHAD.
