Systems Design

Table of Contents

Your website should document your journey through MSD, so include work-in-progress as well as latest results. Use pdf's for display whenever possible so that information is easily viewable without the need to download files and open applications. (Your EDGE file repository should still contain original editable files).

Content linked here should go in the Systems Level Design Documents directory. This directory is pre-populated with a variety of templates that are designed to help you through this phase of the design.

All template text must be removed from this page prior to your Week 3 Problem Definition Review

Plans for next phase

Niall:

Obtain arduino, LED, moisture humidity sensors, etc

Develop working code for moisture sense

Develop working code for SD writing

Erik:

Determine best actuation type; linear vs. reciprocating

Test projected power demands at small scale

Confirm feasibility of up scale

Steven:

Complete CAD design

Begin material research

Begin Dimension Filter testing

Design Review Materials

Include links to:

It is appropriate for you to send your customer and guide a link to this page in preparation for the review. This will ensure that they know what you will be presenting and how to view all of your work. Any EDGE link should start with http://edge.rit.edu/edge/P1xxxx..... Using "http" instead of "https" will ensure that non-RIT stakeholders can view the content without being prompted for a DCE login and password.
