We are looking for battery recommendations for a Ford Think. We are a high school engineering program working on converting one of our three Ford Thinks into an autonomous vehicle. None of vehicles we have, have batteries. We have just under $1800 to spend on batteries and charger. At this point, our only goal is to get the motor running so we can begin to test basic functions such as our steering, braking and power control. Long term, the vehicle will never be expected to drive over 5mph (safety concerns) and will never leave our campus. With these criteria in mind, I would appreciate any suggestions for batteries and criteria for selecting batteries. Thanks!
