P07201: RP10 Motor Module

7201 Team Work Page

Table of Contents


Welcome to the 10kg Motor Module Design History File. Here you will find a detailed history of the design process followed by the 10 kilogram motor module team.

The website has been divided into sections which correspond to the major subsystems of the module. These subsystems correspond to sections of the subversion repository which the team has kept up to date. All files you find linked on these pages reside in the subversion repository. We recommend that you check out a copy of the repository using a subversion client such as TortoiseSVN since not all design documents in the repository are linked on this website. For help setting up or using a subversion client, please see the Resources Super-Project.

Mission Statement

As is stated in the Project Readiness Package "The mission of the Vehicle Systems Technology Track of projects is to develop a land-based, scalable, modular open architecture, open source, full instrumented robotic/remote controlled vehicular platform for use in a variety of education, research & development, and outreach applications within and beyond the RIT KGCOE. This project should use an engineering design process to develop modules and subsytems that can be integrated by subsequent senior design teams.

The mission of this student team is to develop a fully functional, scalable motor module subsystem for use on the 10 kg (RP10) robotic vehicular platform. The team must provide complete documentation of the analysis, design, manufacturing, fabrication, test, and evaluation of this subsystem to a level of detail that a subsequent team can build upon their work with no more than one week of background research."

CAD Files

CAD Files were originally created using Solidworks 2007, and can be found in the team's subversion repository in /mechanical/up to date solidworks documents. Links are provided below for your convenience.

*Note: To use any of the Solidworks 2007 models, you must check out the subversion repository, and open the copy of the file local to your hard drive. Links to IGES and STEP file formats (industry standard cross platform formats) are provided above and the single linked assembly file encompasses all of the parts and subassemblies.
