Week 9: Presentation Development
This week the 1/12th group presentations were done. They talked about their progress and we got to see some CAD drawings.
Our team met up and began to make our powerpoint slides to showcase where we stand.
Our design will keep with the concept of the linkage but with the addition of a linear actuator in the frame to have control over the pitch swinging. This means that we have a battery, accelerometer, gyroscope, and an Arduino. The linear actuator will work statically (off ) during the longitudinal accelerations and work dynamically ( on ) in cohesion with gravity to pitch-level the pod car as it traverses in inclines or declines.

We will continue to evaluate our design for further improvement. For instance, how we can make the suspension mechanisms shorted in vertical length to be more compact in size.
