Problem and solution

Regardless of how long your flight is, coming off the airplane leaves many feeling physically and mentally exhausted. There are numerous stress factors that coincide with traveling by flight, which can include complicated and long layovers, switching airlines, re-checking in through different terminals and etc., this can all be made a little bit easier by adding in a hassle free and productive method of transporting people through the airport in an efficient way. For example, by adding in a moving sidewalk to each terminal, traversing across to different gates / baggage claims can greatly reduce the time and stress it takes for tight layovers; and even make just getting out of the airport faster to a stress free environment an easier and faster process.

Team Members

Our group tried to meet up as much as possible but were unable to meet as much as we all would have liked to due to differing schedules. We didn’t have specific tasks set to each group member, but everyone partook in some way to get the assignment well done.

Our group consisted of the following members:

  • Khalid Almustanyiv – Provided support to all members in tasks, such as helping with the construction and general implementation of each task.
  • Rochell Delevante – Provided initial postings of the constraints, as well as helping with the CNC design. She also typed the initial report for our group and provided pictures and clips for the group video.
  • Heber Jimenez – Provided general design for the battery switch, and helped other team members with construction and design.
  • Dien Kien – Provided the basis for the initial idea and design, worked alongside Rochell for the CNC design, and worked on the editing and creation of the video.

Implementation Details

Use CNC computer for design. 

1. Design 4X 16in Long, 4in Height on foam board. With 1/8 wide 1in deep notch at the top at following coordinate; 2in, 5in, 8in, 15in.

2. Cut 5X dowels; 1in thick, 3 3/8 in long. Then drill pin nails on each end.

3. Glue 2X foam board together times 2, then glue them with two pieces of wood. 2X 6in long, 4in wide, 1in height.

4. Place motor housing with gear box on one end after attaching dowels to the motor. see video.

5. Attach batteries using paper clip circuit. see video.

6. Attach paper belt to dowels.

7. Test. Use more batteries for desire speed.

My notes:

  • No speed spec? How about stability/comfort?
  • No paper belt details
  • You should give Tom a shout/thank you for supplying the gear box!
  • I really like your video intros. Wish all pictures had captions
  • Popscicle sticks appear in the video, but are not mentioned in the blog text
  • +1 Music credits
