What is this wiki about? This is the wiki for the assignment Cross section Integrating Technology DG292. Here you will find the schedule, the lecture notes/presentations and all data relevant for this assignment. '''Introduction'''This assignment covers all aspects of Integrating Technology, although the depth of each sub-area will be limited. It will enable the student to make experiential prototypes with both mechanical, electronic and software aspects included.

The intention of this assignment is help students to integrate all relevant technologies for Industrial Design. You will end the assignment with a final experiential prototype. While building this prototype you will learn how to realize interactivity based on electro-mechanical systems. There is some freedom in proposing the means of the prototype, as long as the purpose is to embed interactivity or even intelligence. By doing this, you will learn how to add a layer of intangible experiences to hardcore technology.

Integrating Technology (Cross section)

IntroductionThis assignment covers all aspects of Integrating Technology, although the depth of each sub-area will be limited. It will enable the student to make experiential prototypes with both mechanical, electronic and software aspects included. The student is invited to make couplings with previous, current or future projects as inspiration for the work.

You will end the assignment with a final experiential prototype. While building this prototype you will learn how to realize interactivity based on electro-mechanical systems. There is some freedom in proposing the means of the prototype, as long as the purpose is to embed interactivity or even intelligence. By doing this, you will learn how to add a layer of intangible experiences to hardcore technology.

Learning objectives
To understand the basics of Integrating Technology; to combine hardware and software; to make prototypes showing a product or system which exists in 3D and also moves; basics of programming (useful for java or C based platforms); principles of feedback; connecting sensors and actuators to an Arduino; making mechanisms which have the correct degrees of freedom (correct application of forces in relation to friction, springs, etc.); to integrate this with meaningful form and senses; to understand the role of experiential prototypes in a design project; to learn using correct terminology and appropriate notations for Integrating Technology.

Learning activities
General schedule
- introducing mechanisms - adding electronics - intermediate challenge - adding programming - embedding and form and senses - presentation of proposal for final project - final report and presentation Set-up
- theory sessions - theoretical exercises - practical assignments - workshops - final project
