2015 Rover Design – In wheel motors

Kicking off the video series with multiple videos! This video discusses the in wheel motors designed this year. For those that were not following the team last year, we had an unfortunate mishap in the terrain traversing challenge at the URC in which one motor was no longer rigidly attached to the frame, and another entirely separated from the gearbox and wheel it was driving. While the team was able to rapidly fix the rover in order to complete some more of the challenge. This years design features in wheel motors, and new rocker-bogie arms that minimize the exposure to the elements, rocks, and other anything it could potentially impact. But for more details, check out this video!
