Task #416

I entered specs, or design guidelines for sensor nodes PCB, that I believe it is proper for the R&D, data collection and analysis phase. We discussed about it, but we didn't mark it down, and that causes miss-coordination for the design of future iterations.

Task #416
Soldered electronic pieces to the new PCB board. Only resistors need to be added, which is a simple task, and a digital level shifter piece that is at the sponsor location.
Board almost ready.

Work - R&D mechanics: 5.50 Time - Hours due May 11, 2016

This is a task for Dave, to finish the design and 3D print a second box.
This needs coordination with the people working on the electronics.
NOTE: we need to integrate wire connectors in the box - ask Tibi, Jim or Scott.
