Nanites present at PNSQC

At the 30th Annual Pacific Northwest Software Quality Conference, the Nanites were honored to conduct a paper presentation entitled "Engineering Quality in the Robotic World". The presentation at the World Trade Center was well-received by members of the professional software community; the Nanites discussed their experiences in FIRST robotics throughout FIRST LEGO League and FIRST Tech Challenge, the error and inaccuracies of the sensors initially used in FTC and the Nanites' solutions to the problems of unreliable orientation and position information.

The poster, PowerPoint presentation, and paper will be available online in a few months, and we will post them when they are!
