Another fine week here with the Robosub team.
We discussed what type of batteries would be best to use and if we should go with distributed or centralized power. We settled on having centralized power using Lithium Polymer batteries and are tossing around the idea of making it a hot-swappable battery system. We were able to meet with those in charge of the campus pool (in our new rec center woowoo!) and received the rules we need to follow during testing in the water.
Our advisers reviewed our Statement of Work , and we will make edits this week and then that document should be finalized. Our SharePoint has been up and running, but there has been some discrepancies on how it is being used, so a presentation will be giving next week to get everyone on the same page. It is hard to believe that just next week is the end of our first quarter! With this, we need to write up the first two chapters of our report- detailing the background of our project and research that we have done. As time is moving right along, we are going to transition from the research to finalizing decisions and designing!
