The parts are summarised per subsystem. These groups are also used to differentiate the assembly stages.
- Communication and sensors
Remark: Our computers use the metric system. A comma, ',', is used for decimals.
The basis for the chassis is a standard RC-vehicle. We use the Kraton 8s. The main changes we make are:
- Remove cover, receiver, spoiler, battery holders and some smaller parts.
- Make the steering stronger.
- Make it manageable for the computers
- Remove the start/stop-option from the button.
- Make ity possible to carry the equipment an a payload.
- Depending on the application, we also change wheels to have tires with harder compound.

Body: External skeleton
The external skeleton is a component of the body.
The main components of the body:
A. The external skeleton to mount the enclosure, camera's and antennas with the chassis.
B. The enclosure that hold the ICT equipment
C. The internal skeleton and materials for mounting the equipment
For the external skeleton we use 20 x 20 mm aluminum profiles with the appropriate connections.
This profile has what's called a groove 5, but the brackets to make connections use bolts M4.
Probably you can order this at you local hardware-store.
The aluminum profile is also used for the internal frame, but not mentioned any more in that list.

With the enclosure the ICT-equipment is as much as possible protected against dust and water.
To bring al cabling into the enclosure cable glands are used.
With the correct assembly at least protection level IP54 should be reached.
