Since we’re working as part of a team and there are hundreds of individual pieces on this robot, we’ve been tasked with handling the Generic Indicator Module System. Since all hardware projects need acronyms, we’ll call this one GIMS. Bonus points for a four-letter acronym, as that puts us just that tiny bit closer to feeling like NASA.
