*”’June 10th 2008”’
Square behind Reina Sofia at 8h30 a.m.
Not exactly the first oficial test, but it was good enough to get an idea of the robot’s performance. The testing started moreless at 8h30 and last for about 2 hours.
During the testing we were able to verify the robot performance with diferent sun conditions, the aesthetics of the spiral drawing as well people’s reaction to the little gadget. Nevertheless, the robot was only able to draw a single semi-circle: when the robot was put in another position to draw a second one it stop working.
At the end of the working day the robot was able to move again.
