The transmission and haptic motors are mounted on different mounting plates along with their own RoboteQ controller, MCU (Arduino Teensy), and power supply.
Because the transmission motor can produce a potentially dangerous amount of force, there is also an emergency stop switch next to it. Both motors have custom
mounting brackets machined out of aluminum and steel, which ensure that they are secure even when the motors are operating. The only connection between
the two motor plates is a cable for serial communication between the two MCUs.
