The next step is putting in the battery management system which will monitor the status of all of the batteries.  I have been working with Charlie Malone who has designed a really nice system.  I am working on the computer display system for his electronics.  The computer display system will also monitor what is coming out of the motor controler, which in my case is the Zilla.  Below are are some preview shots of what the display is going to look like.  It will run on either an iPad or Samsung Tab.
