SYSTEMS CONTROLS

The System Controls subteam is in charge of the motor control, data acquisition, speed control, and communication systems for the boat. We are responsible for the electrical system extending from the batteries to the motor, centralized around the use of a motor controller. We maintain the system that controls the speed of the motor, directs power from the batteries and supports the safety of the skipper. We are also responsible for auxiliary devices that acquire and process data, collecting as much useful data as possible to help improve the functionality of multiple systems.
