Week 27 - More testing and revision / First PCB soldered

In this week's session, we were able to get one PCB soldered and got it working with our assembled podcar.

We re-tested the switch section and it worked successfully. However there were some problems with the track turning section that caused the podcar to re-enter the outer loop. The two rails weren't set up for a smooth re-entry of the car, but we were informed after that there is supposed to be a half-bracket that stabilizes that turn, it just hadn't been mounted yet.

Something else that we've been working on includes adding status updates on the GUI so the user can see when the podcar has reached its destination.
