The Electronics Team

it is what it sounds like

The Electronics team meets once a week and is headed by Nyla Worker [Carleton '19]. The team is divided into two smaller units; one is in charge of the sensors and their functionality, the other has to find a way to power and move our drone effectively as well as find parts to communicate with the main computer.

The sensor subteam is at the time is doing research on point cloud sensors and speed regulators as well as researching previous competitors and companies. We are doing this research in order to have an idea of where we stand in order to create gps free drone.

The power subteam is researching motors, transmiters, power distribution boards and batteries. We are trying to find the most efficient components to build a drone that will be easy to fix and that will have extended periods of flying.
