First steps towards the first IoT Unimog
Yes your eyes are correct. We have the nice opportunity at the motionlab in the next weeks to build the first (as far as we know) IoT enhanced Unimog. Fully equipped with all kind of sensors and solar energy powered. Well at least the IoT and control part. The main engine is still fuel powered but the cool part is modern. 🙂
So the first thing we mechanically repaired was the gun turret lit. As you can see in the picture the original metal lit was corroded and so Claudia decided to replace it with a 20 mm acrylic glas. Beside the weather protection it also gives a nice sky view.
Marcello our “Milling guy” took care of it and drilled the lit, including embedded pockets for the metal clamps. So in case you are in a similar position and want to repair your gun turret here are the CNC milling plans.
