Executive Summary

The mechanical system for the RP1 Motor Module, Project 8208, will closely resemble those developed for the RP10 and RP100 models. The design intent will be reproduced in the drive and steering subsystems, maintaining infinite steering capability, vertical motor configuration, and the general overall parts layout. Primary design considerations include ease of assembly/disassembly, robustness of the subsystem, as well as seamless integration with the other subsystems.
