Team Vision for Preliminary Detailed Design Phase

During this phase phase, the plan is simply to test the components intended for use in the design to ensure that they will suit our needs. Completing this task will allow for a comfortable greenlighting of the current design plans and schematics.

Risk Assessment

The gimbal will need to be prototyped before we can definitively conclude how we intend to handle coil cabling, rotation limit switches or weatherproofing.

We need to find a way to perform thermal and environment testing on the assembly to determine its temperature and humidity tolerance. During this process and in choosing our components, we need to be well aware of the individual temperature ratings of our parts. As it stands, we may have found a suitable option for this set of testing.
