Mission StatementThe 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 drive platform for the robotic vehicular platform incorporating modular motors from P07201, with the ability to carry a 10kg payload. The analysis, design, manufacturing, fabrication, test and evaluation will be completely documented to a level of detail that a subsequent team can build upon the work with no more than one week of background research. The robotic vehicular platform family must be within a budget of $15,000.
This project will be initiated during the Winter Quarter, 2006-2, with many 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 PackageThe P07204 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.
- Concept Development Review - One hour presentation to dicuss the design concept generated over the first five weeks of Senior Design I
- Technical Design Review - Two hour pressentation to present the best design after using doing calculations, simulations and feasibility analysis.
- Project Review Presentation - Thirty minute High level presentation of where the team stands at the end of Senior Design I.
