Knowledge and skills from earlier coursework
Our team used skills learned in Mechanics of materials,Circuits, and Machine component design.
We were constrained by a $7K budget. Concepts were chosento be as cost effective as possible.
Our project is to be as inconspicuous as possible and mustminimize environmental impact.
The camera must have the durability to last for yearswith minmal maintenance.
In order to maintain durabiltiy the system should useoff the shelf part as much as possible.
