2 Actuators  Jeff completed the design and implementation of the brake actuator  Jeff and I were able to raise the seat with spacers in order to make room for the actuator controlling the brake pedal  The brake actuator pushes on the brake bracket while the gas actuator pulls a cable that in turn pulls the gas pedal forward

3 Steering motor bracket  The steering motor needs to be mounted at a 30 degree angle forward so that it lines up with the steering column  The bracket will be directly mounted to the chassis of the go kart and the motor will then be mounted to the bracket at the appropriate angle

4 Steering Bracket The drive shaft of the motor will be facing down the slope of the bracket

5 Steering Motor Drive  The motor will control the steering via a chain and sprocket system  The motor and steering column will have the same size sprocket as the motor provide enough torque to turn the front wheels with a 1:1 ratio

6 Sprocket and Chain

7 Programming  Brahm has spent the past few weeks working on a preliminary c-code system using the tutorials available  By utilizing a protoboard he was able to simulate the steering portion of the code using the joystick and LED lights

8 Protoboard/LED

9 Programming Cont.  He was able to write a program that would cause an LED light to shine brighter the further the joystick was pushed forward  This is what will cause the go kart to accelerate in a linear, controlled fashion i.e. as more pressure is applied the go kart will accelerate faster

10 Future Work  Sohail: Continue to develop a code that will fully control the movements of the go kart through a joystick  Jeff: Mount steering motor and chain/sprocket system  Raymond: Mount steering motor, begin designing/implementing wiring harness
