DESIGNING A TELEMETRY SYSTEM WITH A FOCUS ON EDUCATIONMarcellin, Michael; Fuehrer, Daniel; Nguyen, James; Schreiber, Andre; Univ Arizona, Dept Electrical and Computer Engineering (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2019-10)The University of Arizona Baja Racing team competes in an international competition each year. We build a custom telemetry system for the car to collect data during races in order to inform design decisions and warn of upcoming problems. This paper will focus on the contrast between designing a system for production versus designing for the educational experience, as is the ultimate goal of our team. We will specifically discuss this contrast in the areas of size, power consumption, manufacturability, maintainability, repairability, and testability.
