Week 8 Shared Vision Update

Completed Build Sections and Test Results

Located below are images of our build progress up to October 14, 2015. As briefly described above, all components have been ordered and accounted for. All components have been machined and are prepared for immediate assembly with the exception of non-critical support pieces. These pieces are currently waiting in the process queue of the automated water jet which provide machining solutions that are not feasible manually. These images should provide a relative scale to the final build.

Completed assemblies proposed in the week 5 review were not fully completed due to scheduling conflicts with our experts. In order to ensure that our device rivals a commercial grade product, the team will be waiting until the following week when proper supervision can be provided for the assembly.

Testing Device

The image below depicts the test rig used to perform the second phase of our caster mobility tests. Both sets of casters were mounted to boards and then clamped to a wooden board to simulate both units in motion with the table. The wooden structure itself has the exact dimensions of a sample eight foot long table that would be commonly found on campus.

Test Data

As the data will show, the second phase testing rig was successful in overcoming all obstacles that the single unit had traversed with exception of the ninety degree incline. Both sets of test results are shown. In moving both units with the actual table in a vertical orientation, we found that high wind speeds could pose a potential risk to user control. Proper Calculations will be performed in this phase in order to ensure that the potential risk is low.
