It was hardware

Those of you who read yesterday’s entry will remember that the prevalent thought from the vendor at the time was that it was a software problem and not a hardware one. Well it took them most of today to figure out what the problem was, but it turns out that it was a hardware problem after all.

I have to say that I was finding hard to believe that it was a software problem since we had been using that robot for almost 2 months without that problem surfacing. It made much more sense that it would be a hardware problem.

There is still the issue of replacing that bad hardware part; but apparently it can be done without stopping the robot. As the engineer said: “It should not affect the robot as it is hot swappable”. Hopefully our luck is better during that swap than it has been the last couple of days…

Good night!
