Abstract

The purpose of this research project has been to develop a mechatronics system for automatic antenna deployment of an existing Winegard Sensar[superscript registered trademark symbol] Recreational Vehicle (RV) TV antenna. Winegard had a set of criteria for how they wanted the antenna system to look and function. The main criterion was that it had to be a retrofit to the existing manual antenna. From these requirements a prototype was developed and built to test the functionality of the system as a whole. Feedback from Winegard resulted in an improved new prototype, but it still did not meet the requirements. Therefore, a third prototype had to be made that met the expectations of the team.
