Logitech G920 steering wheel and pedal added to Robolab

We have gotten the Logitech G920 steering wheel and pedal for our self-driving car project. It is much more natural to drive with the steering wheel and pedal than the keyboard and mouse. It works in Carla and will be used in the data collection phase. This will be Syamimi‘s toy for a while.

Upgraded the Raspberry Pi 4 firmware of Niryo NED 6-DoF robotic arm

We are working on the Niryo NED 6-DoF robotic arm that the School of Digital Science has recently acquired. The RPi firmware that came with the NED is an older version and is not compatible with the latest version of Niryo Studio, 4.1.0. So, we upgraded the firmware to 4.1.0.
