On October 22nd, we met with members of the Acomys Research Consortium and presented our Preliminary Design Review (PDR) to them. We received a lot of valuable feedback from the members and got to introduce ourselves to some members of the ARC we had not met before. With the help of the ARC’s recommendations, we have made some adjustments to our project design and hope to get started now that all hardware components have arrived!
Going into next week, we will be utilizing the feedback and advice provided to begin progress on our first prototype! With specific goals and objectives each week, the following month is all about bringing all the work until this point together, and start working on the actual coding, wiring, and 3D modeling. We could not be more excited to take this next step in our project and look forward to getting something working by the end of the year.
