Week 8: Exploring ideas for the test frame
This week, we explored ideas for the design of the test frame. We want the test frame to accommodate an angle of -17 to + 17 degrees, so we need a way to rotate a bar that the suspension would sit on. We determined that the optimal method is using a track actuator that was just lying around the Spartan Superway garage. The challenge will now be to convert linear motion to small angle rotation.
