    Plan

    Turn in Amazon purchase orders and finish EAGLE updates

    Procedures

    Place Amazon purchase orders on the mass purchase orders and start the EAGLE diagrams.

    Progress 

    Finished placing the purchase orders for the Solar Panel, Solar Charge Controller, Deep Cycle Battery, Light Sensor, and GPS sensor. Began my EAGLE design and added vital components including inputs and motors.

    Problems

    Trying to research what motors will suffice for this project.

    Plan

    Complete my CADD drawings and start to fill out purchase order forms.

    Procedures

    Completed my CADD drawing on OnShape and uploaded the screenshots to my website. Filled out some of the components on the purchase form.

    Progress

    I completed my CADD drawings over the past week, and filled out purchase order forms for my solar panel, solar charge controller, and deep cycle battery. Once these components come in, I will determine the motors that are required to move the solar panel. 

    Problems

    Did not include ASINS in the purchase orders, so I have to redo them.
