Your proposal, writeup, etc, should completely describe the technical
aspects of your project. Good technical writing should include
textual descriptions, block diagrams, circuit schematics, mechanical
drawings, and other details (as appropriate). Browsing through
patents at the US
Patent Office is one source of examples (both good and bad). In
particular, Professor Leeb's patent
6,198,230: Dual-use Electronic Transceiver Set for Wireless Data
Networks has good examples of the kind of stuff we're looking for.
Final Project Ideas
These are just some ideas to help you come up with a project.
Some of these are not complete projects on their own or may
be too difficult.
- Use an H-bridge to give forward and reverse
- Build a magnetically-launched nailgun
- Use closed-loop control
- Build an uninterruptable power supply (UPS)
- Implement peak power tracking for a photovoltaic cell
