Unformatted text preview: cts of the initial design be modified.
► After testing the first recursion, the team
discovered that the roller configuration was flawed
for it could not generate enough torque.
► The team also discovered that the climber was too
heavy and flimsy. CURRENT DESIGN
► The team applied the lessons from the first recursion to
create a better climber.
The team decided to switch to a two motor configuration
with 50:1 gear ratio which provides substantially greater
torque and weighs as much as the earlier recursion.
Polycarbonate is the primary material instead of
Changed overall design layout to increase stiffness.
Included additional design for a more complete climber
setup that included mount points for failsafe brakes, guide
rollers, belay hooks, payload and electronics. Current Design
► Motor-roller module
► Payload module
► Electronics module
► Power module
► All modules except electronics module have
