Team Vision

The goal of this phase was to find a conclusive explanation of why the wheatstone bridge subsystem is not outputting a voltage as expected. Unfortunately, the team has still not found out the specific reason for the low voltage output. Since the last phase the team has done the following:

What is next? We believe we have exhausted all nondestructive testing options. During the following few days and next week we are planning to move forward with removing strain gauges and testing placement in an experimental environment.
