Team Vision for System-Level Design PhaseDuring this second phase, our team broke down the three sensor systems, determined in the previous phase, to identify the best route for us to take in achieving the key deliverables. We developed a few different concepts that considered the various ways we may be able to collect each type of data individually and how we may be able to incorporate them together. Through analysis we determined three concepts were found to be most feasible. From there we performed further analysis and discussion to come to a final decision on a design goal to focus on during the remaining weeks. This allowed us to create a more defined project plan as a team and as individuals for the rest of the semester.
Updated DocumentsIn our last review there were concerns about our engineering requirements mainly that we didn't really have measurable values to test for. So we went back and revised them.
See link here for complete spreadsheet.
We also went back to revise our Risks and actually thought about and addressed the effect each one would have on the project, what would cause each risk to become a reality and came up with actions to mitigate these risks form occurring. We determined the importance of each based on the likelihood (1-3) and severity (1-3). This can be seen in the Risk Management section below.

Feasibility: Prototyping, Analysis, Simulation
Device Weight Testing: Based on the weight of the current sensors we have for feasibility testing and current physical prototype we determined that our device should be no more than .35 kg. In order to determine if this weight was acceptable Elizabeth will wear the prototype with weight attached for 3.5 hours to determine if the device was comfortable at this weight.
Electrical Testing Motion: Put all of the sensors through the same motion patterns and then analyze which sensor give the best output. Sensors also tested in different modes.
Electrical Testing EMG: Compare EMG data to a known reliable source of EMG data
Morphological Chart and Concept SelectionHere is a link to our document.
Criteria: For decisions on concept selection, each criteria was assigned at number 0.5 (Least important)-1.5 (Critical) based off of deliverables.
- Battery Life
- Data Efficiency
- Execution Feasibility
- Data Security
- Size- Amount of arm covered
- Ease of Setup
