TOUGHNESS REINS IN WONDERLAND
It was necessary to finish all of the tasks from the previous five weeks as well as the prototype planning for all three projects in the digital workbook as the first assignment of the week. Then, in accordance with our weekly prototype plan, we divided the work for the prototype amongst ourselves to complete the sub sections that we had to do on this day. Which are: Block schematics, circuit diagrams, and 3D designs are provided for each of the three projects.
An assessment of the day's work was done before starting the following one. The circuit and block diagrams for all three projects had already been finalized, despite the fact that extra jobs needed to be accomplished on the circuit diagrams because additional components could not be identified in the simulation softwares available . Once that, the job of building the actual Low Fidelity Prototype using cartons began after the established 3D design was cut out using a laser cutter. The laparoscopic and vein finder 3D Designs were finished, but other components of the neonatal monitor project were still unfinished and were expected to be finished the next day.
As we were still experiencing difficulty modelling the circuits on the simulation tool, we started assessing the circuits of all the projects on Wednesday in order to complete building the 3D design for the Neonatal Monitor. Following that, we had a conversation with our teaching assistants on how to build our circuits, and they also gave us advice on the steps we need take to guarantee that the problem we are experiencing is fixed.
In order to finish the job on Thursday morning in time for the presentation that afternoon, we were able to attach other components to the Neonatal Monitor Low Fidelity Prototype and construct the 3D design for the laparoscopic endoscopic stapler. In the afternoon, we showed our teaching assistants, Ms. Will Moyo, the Design Studio country manager, and Ms. Maureen Vale, a Rice360 biomedical engineer stationed at QECH, our low-fidelity prototypes. All of our projects were assessed, with the main objective being to increase their functionality as our prototypes lacked it.
NO TIME TO REST SEE YOU NEXT WEEK AS WE CONTINUE THE PROTOTYPING
