It may not be much, but every little victory is a step forward. Our PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards) have been made and are with our manufacturing consultant, and we'll have one in our hands in the next few days, God willing.
From here we need to test to make sure that the pump we've initially specified for the proof of concept, as well as the coding that has been implemented to control it all, are up to the job we need them to do. Not just 'do they work', but do they work in the manner that we would like them to with a user friendly experience.
There will inevitably be a few speed-humps to overcome, but progress is progress and we don't take it for granted.
