Before shipping your vehicle to an event you will need to prepare it to receive the On-Board Computer.
Gently pull the plug up through the shaft, connect it to the socket on the underside of the Pod and fasten the nut of the connector. Put the Pod onto the Holding Plate. The magnets will firmly fix device. If the Pod remains loose, check the installation of the Holding plate. The magnets must be on top of the Holding Plate.
Push the Start Button on top of the Pod to start the On Board Computer. The device is able to startup when the following conditions are met:
The system will show that it is powered on by the green LED on the Pod and the 12V and 3.3V LEDs on the Backbone.
The power for the sensors will be switched on during startup depending on the configuration.
30-60 seconds after the POWER LED is lit, the device checks its own state and the state of the connected sensors. The Backbone holds a configuration of the mandatory sensors. If there is a problem with the on board computer or one of the sensors one or more of the Pod LEDs will flash.
