Team Vision for Final Demo and Handoff

We planned to

We accomplished everything that we planned on doing. We ran into issues with our communication system, which resulted in inconsistent power to the motor controllers.

Meeting the Customer Requirements

The following table displays which customer requirements we were able to validate.

Matt H. and Max test the boat in the Genesee River. The boat was able to successfully move under the power of the two motors with the river current as well as with the weight of its two riders.

Test Day 2 - Irondequoit Bay

A second round of testing was done at Irondequoit Bay. While Matt H. was at the controls, Max collected IMU as well as GPS data from the boat via RF communication.

Plans for Wrap-up

In terms of our project, we plan on testing it one more time so we can collect IMU and GPS data. During this phase, we were not able to collect data due to the communication issue. This issue has been solved by telling our Xbees to search for a specific address. We plan on finishing up our MSD requirements and providing documentation for our electrical and mechanical systems.
