Forward Progress

Fabrication of the steering and suspension has begun! Four of the team members are designing and building the entire steering and suspension system as their capstone senior design project. The steering components in the preliminary prototype are primarily Aluminum, and the system was designed to be as close to perfect steering alignment as possible. The team even took inspiration from crew team racing boats in their pursuit of a lightweight, compact and elegant steering system that will minimize energy loss. Stay tuned for pictures of the system in fabrication and testing!
