BOM, Build Progress, and Current Test Results

Test Plan Document

For testing we first attached the wheels to a small wooden frame. This test was done to see how easy or difficult it is to move the test rig over bumps of various heights. Bumps up to 3/4 inch can be traversed over with the 270 lb weight we had available. The one inch vertical bump outside of the machine shop could not be traversed. In addition we learned that slowing down before hitting a bump or slope significantly increases the difficulty of pushing the test rig.
