Finished up my senior design. We ended up realizing that there wasn’t going to be enough time outside of regular class to design, fabricate, and test the rear suspension this semester, so we focused our efforts on getting a running drivetrain. We tested and mapped the pins for each battery which tell us important things such as charge states, current outputs, and temperature. We were able to test the charge and discharge the batteries and run the Small Drive Tesla motor on a bench. Here’s a picture of the battery box we built and some artwork I put together.
Here is a photo of our testing setup during our presentation.
