Project Update: Cue
Introduction / Recap:
As bikers, our team wants to create a safer way to have bikers show what actions they are going to take when biking. Utilizing our product, bikers will be able to easily signal movements and increase visibility with wireless signal lights that are able to be attached to a variety of surfaces, such as a sweater/jacket, backpack, or on the bike itself. With our product, we plan to aid in minimizing bicycle-related injuries and death across the world.
Design Sprint Objective:
By the end of next week this time, we hope that we can make a wearable prototype. We believe that we should do this first and then later on work on connecting the LED lights to the microbits.
Project Update and Insights:
The Good News: Ricky and Kamlin had finally finished something very essential for Cue, the code. The code's toggle feature had been fixed now and you can turn it on and off whenever. In order to make a right turn signal, you press the B button and it will begin blinking an arrow to the right. In order to make a left turn signal, you press the A button and it will begin blinking an arrow to the left. In order to turn it off you have to click both the A and B button simultaneously.
Emilio had been working on the prototype by acquiring clip on straps and he came up with this idea of trying to make these straps sort of reflective with light so it can make the LEDS lights much more easier to see like during the night. Emilio had also began 3D printing these clip on strap buckles for the prototype.
*This is our kanban board* *We still need to work on reprinting the CAD models for the bike handles*
*These are products Emilio has been thinking about buying for our prototype*
Blockers / Obstacles / Unknowns
The only issues we really had this week was some of our teammates being absent.
This week we will work on making a prototype using the clip on straps and using Emilio's idea of using a waist training belt along with it.
