I'm considering hiring a freelance electrical engineer to produce circuit schematics for a remote control vehicle concept. My intent is to bring these schematics to a PCB designer to create Gerber files for manufacturing. How can I help my electrical engineer design a circuit schematic that best reflects the design intent of the vehicle?

So far I've compiled written and illustrated descriptions of the vehicle's function along with several rudimentary (and definitely flawed) attempts at circuit schematics. I also have conceptual mechanical drawings of the vehicle with approximated sizes and locations for electrical components. I have already selected motors, batteries, and external sensors, but would be open to suggestions from the person I hire.

What else can I bring to the table that will help facilitate effective collaboration between the mechanical and electrical halves of the project?

Well.. I've done all three (SCH, PCB and 3D integration -- which really just means preparing a STEP file and working with the ME on enclosure, outline and profile restrictions).

Did... you have a project schedule in mind? Budget? Should we take this offline and talk proposals..?!

Personal job offers are all okay! thumbsup.gif

Go ahead, and good luck to the both of you.
