Faculty Guide Dr. Alan Nye (Mechanical Engineering) Faculty Consultant Dr. Martin Gordon, P.E. (Mechanical Engineering Technology) Primary Customers Formula SAE Mini Baja SAE Project Mission Statement Product Description /Project Overview Developing a road map with a vision of where competitive auto-sports should be three years from now. Includes progressive innovation of senior design projects in the FSAE auto-sport discipline. Project Deliverables Competitive FSAE Autosports Roadmap Detailed project proposals beginning 2008-2 Values and Norms Punctual Each team member will be prompt and arrive at the team meetings on time. If an unexpected conflict

comes up, the absent team member will notify at least one team-mate prior to the expected absence. An absent team-member should confirm that a team-mate has received their message (in person, voice mail, email, etc). Thorough Each team member will complete their tasks thoroughly and completely, so that the work does not have to be re-done by a peer on the team. If a member does not know how to complete a task, feels overwhelmed, or needs assistance then the member notifies peers, and seeks assistance either from a peer, the faculty guide, a faculty consultant, or another person. Accurate Each team member completes their work accurately and in a way that can be easily checked for accuracy by peers and the faculty guide. All work is fully documented and easy to follow. Professional and Ethical Each team member gives credit where credit is due. All work completed includes citations to appropriate literature, or sources of assistance. If a team member has gotten assistance from a publication or individual, then that assistance or guidance is fully documented in the reports prepared. Each team member is honest and trustworthy in their dealings with their peers. Demonstrates the core RIT values of SPIRIT. Committed Each team member will contribute an equal share to the success of the project.

The vehicle is put through rigorous events that test the student's ability to engineer a fast, durable vehicle that meets certain specifications set forth by the SAE organization. Customer Needs Water Propulsion system light weight and durable Water proof Able to be remanufactured Ability to turn in water Propelled forward quickly in water

Mission Statement To design and develop a test stand for the water propulsion system that will measure the output force, durability and control of the system. The test stand must accommodate a full scale model of the propulsion system and be able to lift the tires in and out of the water as well as rotate freely. The stand must also and have a user friendly interface that displays quantitative information about the system. This will aid in the design of the water propulsion system that will be build later in the project. Staffing Requirements Name Discipline Role / Skills TBD TBD

Faculty Guide, Will work closely with the team on an on-going basis to facilitate success. TBD TBD Faculty Consultant, Will provide discipline technical support on an intermittent basis. TBD TBD Teaching Assistant Stephanie Malinowski ME Project Manager, Schedule meeting, book keeping, and keep team and project on track. Encourage team members.

Gregory Wall ME Chef Engineer, Head the design and building of the test stand, and water propulsion system. Encourage team members. TBD Student EE Involved in the design and development of the sensor and wheel drive system of the test stand. Involved in any motorization of the water propulsion system that may be needed. TBD Student ME Assist with the chef engineer, and help develop an build the test system. Will do materials research for water resistance and protection of the motor. TBD Student

CE Developing the interface for the test stand to display the information collected from the sensors, and to run the test stand. TBD Student IE Develop a way to remanufacture the system quickly and efficiently. Work Breakdown Person Week 0->1 Tasks Week 1->2 Tasks Week 2->3 Tasks ME- Project

Manager Schedule team meetings and get group information, as well as get group caught up with background information of the project, and expectations. Team building exercises. Make sure everyone from the group is on task, and is up to speed with each other. Update website, and schedule any needed meetings with Baja. Update website, make sure everyone is on track. Help the other MEs with the design and fabrication of test stand. ME- Chief Engineer

Research previous designs, and get group caught up with rule and regulations. Give group members starting goals. Continue with R+D, look into materials to use on the test stand, and start collecting resources and planning design. Start finalizing designs for the test stand, and make sure all the necessary recourses are lined up for building it. EE Research sensors and suitable motors, for both the test stand and the water propulsion system.

Continue research, start looking into where we can get the resources needed for the project. Start getting a hold of motors and sensors, and wiring and testing them to make sure they will work as needed. ME Get together with the chef engineer, and help review and research designs. Work with chef engineer in material research. Continue working with chef engineer for finalizing the design of the test stand.

CE Get together with the EE and discuss sensors they will be used and make sure they can be implemented into a user interface. Continue working with the EE, and possibly start developing a program for the user interface. Continue developing a user interface. IE Work with the two MEs with the initial research and development. Continue working with the MEs in material research.

Continue working with MEs, making sure final design is manufacturable. Required Resources Old Baja Chassis Light weight, durable, water resistant materials Motors and sensors Machine shop Computer lab for user interface Lab to build test stand Wheels and tires Lots of water Issues and Risks Currently do not have a sponsor, and therefore no funding. Acquiring resources Time in the machine shop
