We've sifted through the lengthy manuals that come with the equipment and have written our own quick reference manuals for the layman and mechanic alike.
I think it would be a good idea for everyone to be familiar with the equipment and know general operation of them. Feel free to add or modify these manuals as the year progresses. Remember that future classes could be able to utilize these manuals too.
Honda Generator Quick-Guide:
I found a website that explains how to convert our human energy into electrical energy:
lots of good info for how deep cycle marine batteries work
we need a 100+amp hour one and a 55 amp hour
also it recommends an AGM (absorbed glass mat) battery as opposed to a gel battery
1. Get dimensions and specs. on equipment that is ordered so we can build supports to be ready when the bikes arrive. Sketch out prototypes. --- (David)
2. Investigate wireless possibilities for the speakers. (the less wire and cables the better) Wireless communication to the projectors. Allow for multiple laptops to interface with the bikes.
3. Make everything travel safe/ road proof so we can project in motion. And storage case.
4. Assign maintenance duties to people to assure bikes and generators are good to go when we need them.
5. Secure bike-specific tools. A "first aid kit" for a bike. --- (Ryan)
6. Investigate uses of GPS trackers: returning stolen bikes & tracking on mapping our bike rides --- (Dave)
