Team Vision for System Level Demo with Customer

Summarize:

Design Change for Sensor Board

Decided don't need to create a PCB for the sensor board. Instead, two smaller perfboards will be assembled. One to connect the ODroid to the CAN controller/transceiver and another with a teensy, GPS, IMU, and CAN transceiver.

Boat Location

We have secured a location for our boat on campus in the turnaround spot by Gleason in the Unity Quad.

Solar Panel Tests

The MSD Panel has had MC4 connectors installed so that all solar panel connections are the same.

The Trainer panels have been connected in parallel and MC4 connectors have been installed to standardize all connections.
This pictures shows the preliminary testing of full solar panel array. Array is made up of two 18W Marine Grade Panels, one 100W Panel, and five 20W Trainer Panels. The battery being used is a 12V 200Ah LiPo battery with the eTracer MPPT.

Weather conditions for testing were not ideal. Both days that testing was performed turned into full overcast with dark clouds. Further testing will be done to capture a full array of conditions.
