Kevin's unnecessary but cool control board
One of Kevin's control boxes will be a large fuze/switch box. The battery banks will feed into here and the power will be distributed to the motor controllers and other power systems. Within the box is a switch and a couple of fuses, very simple.
This was a little too simple for me so I have added an additional sensor board, this will monitor the main power supply voltage and current consumption and I have also thrown in a temperature sensor as well.
I am going to be using a small OLED display mounted in the lid to output the status of these sensors, this is a great little screen which draws very little power and is visable across a wide range of light conditions, and it looks good! This is driven by an arduino pro mini which reads the sensor values and then displays the readings along with a summary, I will hopefully pass these sensor readings along to other devices on the robot which may need it.
