Pre-Finals Update!

Pre-Finals Update!

These last few weeks have been a whirlwind of progress and research! Software Updates: We can send serial data over web-sockets and control arduino boards through Ethernet. Transitioning to a wireless link soon. Data transfer is nearly instantaneous but we still need to see wireless functionality. Mechanical Updates: Finishing up Pressure Hull for testing on Saturday. Once that passes the test, other teams should be able to use the hull. Decided G-Flex resin works well. XTC resin results are inconclusive. Using G-flex for our current Pressure Hull. Printed a part of the hull to mount the thrusters and cable penetrators. Modifying designs to make screwing in thrusters easier. Electrical Updates: Created voltage step down design for all four batteries. Need further tests to determine voltage draw from sensors. Simulated wiring for the rasp pi’s (using one battery). Decided on voltage regulator for circuits. Oceanographic Updates: Researched and decided upon Brine tests methods, should be implementation on Saturday. ArcGIS maps developed […]
