Team Vision for System-Level Design Phase
Our goals for this phase were to finalize and correct errors that were discovered during the Phase 1 Problem Definition Review, present our current progress toward our ultimate goal of a functioning circulatory system model, and receive valuable feedback from the audience. A functional decomposition was constructed, concepts were developed, and we began the brainstorming process for the subsystems that will need to be fabricated.
Suppliers and Existing Models
PASCO pressure sensors will allow measurement of pressure/flow across the circulatory system model (TBD).
Tubings and fittings will be used for model design and for controlling parameters (pathologies) within the circulatory system (TBD).
LabVIEW is a system-design platform and development environment for a visual programming language produced by National Instruments. LabVIEW is a potential software that will be used to model/compute the data received from the circulatory system (TBD).
MATLAB software will be used for the numerical computing (data gathering) portion of the model. MATLAB will compile the data and present it to the end user for further analysis (TBD).
Below are models that have already been developed and will be used as a source of inspiration for our circulatory system model design.
