Performance Test 1

Above are the figures for the comparison of power vs. time of the two concept AEV’s tested. The code used can be found in [Appendix 2]. AEV 2 took significantly longer to reach the starting gate while running at the same motor speed, therefore using more power to accomplish the same goal. Movement after the gate is not a reliable comparison at this time because the code was based on time, not marks. Cost is also not a deciding factor in which AEV will be put through more performance tests because both came to a total of $158,230.00. This leaves power usage ass the sole deciding factor which clearly indicates that AEV 1 should be used in for future testing.
