Lacking Skills

Team Values and Norms


The following list documents the team expectations. All teammates must exhibit all of the following qualities.

Issue Escalation

Encountered issues should be brought up with all members of the group in a group setting. The issue will be then be talked about in a controlled manor and a solution generated.

Potential failure modes

As far as team values go, the biggest risk is that an issue goes uncommunicated to the team. If one member were to drop out without telling the team and the work redistributed, the work would probably not end up getting done. Another risk is if a member's work ethic is lacking and the quality of their work is bad, the work would need to be redone, or a lower quality of product would be produced.

Project Plans & Schedules

First Revision

We need to get comfortable with the tools that we will use to complete the project. In order to get us all up to speed, we will create multiple circuit boards from the individual subsystems. Subsystems:

* Includes RasPi power, power for ICs, etc

* Includes USB hub, USB TTL, USB Audio

* Includes Radio, Radio control, Output LPF

* Includes components so we can fine tune our filters.
