System Power Up

Last night we reached a pretty major milestone on the rover wiring.  All the electrical components are installed and wiring is complete except for the EPOS motor controllers.  We did a power up test with the system running off of lab bench supplies and everything performed as expected.  All expected voltages were verified using a multimeter.  The computer booted up first try and all of the USB and ethernet devices were recognized. So far we have a 100% pass rating on the electrical systems and no damaged components!   The battery and BMS is installed but we are holding off a few days to install the EPOS controllers before doing a full “standalone” system test.  We are hoping within a week or two the rover will be onthe ground and driving.
