Engineering Specifications

Interface Specification

The Interface Specification document defines the interfaces shared between components of the LV1 Platform and the motor modules (P10202), motor controller (P10203), and wireless communications module (P10205). The LV1 Platform Interface Specification Breakdown shows the layout of the interfaces and the aspects that need to be defined for mechanical and electrical interfaces.
