                2. equipment box
III.    Drive / Steering
                1. motors / servos
                2. suspension
                3. tranmission
IV.     Sensors

Next Week

Next Weeks Deliverables:

We have established an up-to-date gannt chart for the rest of the semester. We have decided to use a series of peltier devices (thermo-electric coolers) with a control feedback system to control the interior heat during the day. This should work well with our current design. We also have at least four motor companies chosen to contact about their micro motors. I spoke with Patrick Alexander from TSU. We will be in contact with each other several times a week to get new updates.
