Operator Interface Controls
I have finished the master control for the operator interface, Josh made a bracket to fix the control box to the arm rests on the operator chair, adjustable via T nuts. The controls feel good, and I hope will be fairly intuitive. I also added a capacitive touch sensor into the top of the joystick that will work as the operator present signal.
