  2. How would you open the modules? There's no doors on individual modules and the tops are bolted. The entire module array is bolted together and only the side skirt sections have hinges To access the supposed top storage you would have to lift and hold the entire array: I imagine that the logic with PSO fit is that the vehicles would be operating closely from FOBs and not need as much autonomy.

  8. Official literature lists only one. In a H-Drive system I believe that a differential-like component for an individual wheel would be classified as a (limiter/reducer?) gearbox.
