This project started on June 18th, 2015 and will end two weeks later. 

We are doing Milestone 1: Design considerations

The goal of this milestone is to perform a comprehensive review of gimbals, and to choose the best features that match the goal of the project.

  • The first step if general considerations, a high-level design effort to take into consideration a few important elements. Note that these elements maintain important relations and they cannot be considered on an individual basis.
  • The second step is to list different designs and designs ideas.
  • The third step is to make a rational choice of features to be blended into a design.
