Mission Statement

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.

This project will be initiated during the Fall Quarter, 2006-1, with two other closely related projects. Additionally, these projects have significant overlap with projects from the Aerospace Systems and Technology Track (P07100), and the Systems and Controls Track (P07300).

Project Readiness Package

The P07201 Project Readiness Package documents customer needs and expectations, project deliverables (including time frame), budget, and personnel / organizations affiliated with the project. It will serve as the primary source of information for students necessary during Phase 0 (Planning) to develop a SD I plan and schedule including specific deliverables and due dates. The Project Readiness Package will also support Faculty evaluation of project suitability in terms of depth, scope, and student / faculty resources by discipline.

Potential Concepts

These are suggested concepts only. They were developed to better understand the system requirements. They do not necessarily need to be followed.
