Motors and Controllers Arrived!

Our Motors and Motor Controllers Have Arrived!

The motors are AME-218 windshield wiper motors. These motors will become part of the wheel assembly, hiding inside the wheels themselves. 

The motor controllers are Roboteqs model MDC2230C. They are compact, extremely light weight, and capable of driving two channels at 60A each. 

Next step while we wait for the wheel assemblies to be milled is to hook it all up to some batteries and get the wheels spinning through ROS
