Responsibility of the Water Detection System

Because we would need to be able to detect the presence of water under the vehicle, we would need a few water detectors present.

Current Status and Work

  1. We have in stock 2 water detectors from Electrodepot that needs to be mounted near the bottom of the vehicle.
  2. They need 24V for power and their digital signal needs to be read, most probably by the Galil Motion Controller's digital inputs.
  3. Software needs to be written for the Water Server which continuously polls for the digital signal.
