Team Vision for Subsystem Level Build & Test Phase
Team Vision: All subsystem critical functions are operational.
Test & Assembly Results
Mechanical SubsystemsThe following table reflects the current state of 3D printed parts. The design of the touch apparatus is being adjusted after a change in the linear actuator and will be printed at the beginning of the next phase. All other parts have been printed but may require small adjustments for assembly and system integration.
The following images show one of the vertical "arms" of the system. The full system will include two of these arms, with horizontal rods connecting them and holding the linear actuator assembly.
The image below shows the mounting of the linear bearings to the slider block.
The image below shows the motor housing assembly for the vertical arm
System Weight TrackingThe following table and chart show the breakdown of the weight of the system.
Linear ActuatorThe linear actuator is the device that will physically touch the hard buttons and the screen.
Force Sensitive Resistor (FSR)The FSR will determine the amount of force from the linear actuator and will determine engagement.
The actual data recorded is shown below along with a graph to illustrate the data.
CameraThe camera will take pictures of the MFD screen with resolution high enough for the LM algorithm.
MotorsThe motors will be used to move the carriage that holds the linear actuator to induce movement.
TCP/IPTCP/IP is the protocol that will be used to communicate between the Raspberry Pi and the PC via Ethernet.
Power DistributionThis is not a formally tested subsystem but is necessary for powering the system.
