Log Day 34
Hydraulics are assembled, activated and tested. Open agenda includes troubleshooting of
valves and obtaining a steer cylinder with 4-inch stroke.
Mechanically, the hydraulic drivemotor is low RPM, so a proposal is to circumvent the
robot’s gear reduction, resulting in direct drive to the ATV driveline components. An
intriguing consequence is that this might mechanically enable mode switching from
hydraulic to electric.
Software proposed an architecture and initiated consideration of software design.
Conversation is addressing concern for the technical viability and approach for regulatory
acceptance of our proposed Magellan Development.
