Team Vision for Build & Test Prep Phase
Plan to Accomplish
- Obtain a workspace for MSD II with compressed air for use with the cylinder.
- Order all parts required for testing
- Create test plans for the project
- Begin designing of web application
- Setup collector and raspberry pi on RIT network for testing
- Acquired work space with crucial components to our project, as well as storage for our materials.
- Ordered majority of materials, with remaining few being in the process of being ordered
- Laid out test plans across every necessary aspect of the project, by referencing the engineering requirements
- Began problem tracking on risks that have manifested into problems
- Began setup of collector and raspberry pi on RITs network
- Began machining of test bed components
- Began designing web application
Test Plan Summary
RequirementsWe have narrowed our Customer and engineering requirements to fit the scope of our project. With our current budget and time constraints we believe that we forsee no issues with meeting our goal of having a working prototype by May.
Here are the current Customer and engineering requirements.
Testing PlansOur project was broken down into various aspects based on what the engineering requirements were and testing plans for each aspect were broken down with a plan to accomplish each. Aspects such as battery life, max force, and data delay are planned out and prepared for testing. Each aspect will be broken down below, with a link to the entire testing document found here
Final Test Prep Accomplishments
- Large majority of materials to be ordered have been ordered, with a small amount of items being ordered this week
- A team space has been reserved, and comes with compressed air to be used for testing
Risk and Problem Tracking
- Like all other phases of the project, the risks invovled are always changing and the list of them is being updated. A link to our most recent risk assessment can be found here.
- Some risks have became a reality and have manifested into problems, in which we actively work to solve these. A link to all problem tracking documents can be found here.

Plans for next phase
Individual Three Week Plans
- Accelerometer Calibration
- Assist with rig build
- Complete Purchase test materials
- Piston Calibration
- Drop Test
- Discuss final necessary materials with other team
- Discuss height design changes
- Connect all of the Python scripts together to be able to transfer data received from the sensor to the database
- Work on setting up the raspberry pi and collector on RIT's network
- Continue stress testing the raspberry pi as well as the database to ensure that it will handle the workload
- Assist teammates with initial web page setup
- Compile research on concussion impacts and angles
- Create angle and height variations for testing
- Assist with final material purchase
- Assist with rig build
- Contact Packaging Science to borrow accerometers for calibration
- Set-up sensors for testing
- Complete test rig.
- Manufacture angled chucks for headform positioning.
- Anchor accelerometers to helmet.
- Purchase and assemble pneumatics
- Order parts that weren't requested at the end of MSDI
- Assist software team with coding until PCB parts arrive
- Assemble PCB
