Sub-System Design

Phase Planning

The purpose of this phase was to define critical sub-systems and to begin preliminary testing to answer key technical questions and issues.

Our current defined sub-systems are as follows:

1. Auto-Homing and Over-travel

2. Debris Collection

3. Vacuum Table

4. Safety and User Experience

From these sub-systems we further broke it down into components. Using this breakdown, Customer Requirements, and Engineering Requirements we defined key problem areas and issues that required testing.

Week 9 Tasks

Test Tracking

A Test Tracking Worksheet was developed to help manage past, present, and planned tests. Currently two tests have been conducted and further testing is planned for later phases.
