Team members will help to assemble a small generator, electric motor, controller, battery pack, battery management system and CAN solution. Participants will work in teams of two, each team being responsible for a different component. The class will focus on optimizing integration of pre-selected parts with the goal of a rolling chassis by the end of IAP. The course will meet five times for a lecture styled session where each team will introduce their respective subsystem. Participants in the course are expected to have previous experience with at least one subsystem to participate in the course.
