Integrated System Build & Test with Customer Demo
Team Vision for System Level Demo with CustomerSummarize:
- have mounting system built and in place
- have our subsystems wired on the boat
- data for solar panels and validation of Engineering Requirement 1
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.
We have secured a location for our boat on campus in the turnaround spot by Gleason in the Unity Quad.
Work InstructionsA brief outline and the final format of the work instructions can be found below.
Solar Panel Tests
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.
