Practical 12 - Prototype Design
Students will learn how to utilize all of their electrical skills up to this point to design a new electrical system layout. This can be on paper, or preferably in CAD using SolidWorks. This is simply a layout design without wire routing, although consideration about where components should go based on wiring as per Wire Harness Design is important.
Practical 13 - Prototype Production
In this section students will bring together their practical skills learned both in electrical and in the Build division to fabricate and assemble functioning prototype electrical systems. These systems will be tested and if performing well, can become the final on board electrical system for a competition robot.
