I wanted Taylor to weigh in and allow the community to weigh in on the priorities and schedule for the project.
We’ve started talking very generally about specific aspects, but I have the feeling that’s because there isn’t a specific target. I have been on vacation from engineering for a couple of weeks or I’d have started in on the drive system refinements already.
Still, I feel that the benefit of a project in early stages like this is the ability to establish the integrated requirements and not to simply treat it as a dozen isolated projects that happen to bolt together.
So to generalize, I see the subsystems:
- Power Management
- Energy Production
- Energy Storage
- Energy Supervisory Controls
- Energy Safety
- Mobility Safety
- Mobility Supervisory Controls
- Information Gathering
- Command Receipt
- Vision System
++ Agricultural Specific
- Appendages (modular)
- Applicators (remote, spray or etc)
- Accessory Equipment
