Specifications
  • Decrease the physical strain caused by daily activities.
    • Subsystems are chosen based on the repetition of activities performed on a regular basis that can cause excessive strain to the back.
    • Prevent repetitive stooping and bending while carrying a load, such as a sack of groceries, or a watering can.
  • Be easy to use
    • The user interface must be one that is familiar to most people.
    • The user must be able to access the system from a remote location.
      • Telephone
  • Stay within the allowed budget.
    • The entire prototype must cost $400 or less.
  • Design modular systems
    • Ease of expansion to a more powerful microcontroller
      • Atmel AVR line of products
      • Programmed in C++ or Assembly
    • Multiple use subsystems:
      • Precision Rotational Control
        • Unipolar Stepper Motor
      • Precision Linear Control
    • Must be able to interface with existing hardware.
      • Answering Machine
    • Can be easily interfaced with a PC at a future date.
      • RS-232
  • Build a minimum of two subsystems.
  • Do not violate apartment contract during testing or final implementation.
