        What is Senior Design?
 Senior Design is a transition between
  student life and being a professional on
  the first job.
 In Senior Design Students learn to take
  responsibility for their successes and
 The Title of Senior Design project is an
  important item to list in one’s Resume.
           What is Senior Design?
   Learning By Experience to:
     Grow technical depth and breadth.
     Work with others in a team to achieve
      common objectives.
     Set realistic goals
     Manage project time efficiently
     Write professional reports
     Make professional oral presentations
             What is Senior Design?
   Engineering design is defined by the Accreditation
    Board for Engineering and Technology as
   ``the process of devising a system, component, or process
    to meet desired needs. It is a decision-making process (often
    iterative), in which the basic sciences, mathematics, and
    engineering sciences are applied to convert resources
    optimally to meet a stated objective. Among the fundamental
    elements of the design process are the establishment of
    objective and criteria, synthesis, analysis, construction,
    testing, and evaluation.''
            Why are you here?
   Engineering: The application of scientific and
    mathematical principles to practical ends such as the
    design, manufacture, and operation of efficient and
    economical structures, machines, processes, and
   Invention: A new device, method, or process
    developed from study and experimentation: the

Philo Farnsworth
            In 1922 a 14-year-old farm boy
            first sketched an idea for his
            science teacher…"What has this
            got to do with Chemistry?"
            Tolman asked. "I've got this
            idea," Farnsworth calmly replied.
            "I've got to tell you about it
            because you're the only person I
            know who can understand it."
            The boy paused and took a deep
            breath. "This is my idea for
            electronic television.“
            "Television?" Tolman said,
            "What's that?"
Philo Farnsworth
            In 1927, Philo Farnsworth was
            the first inventor to transmit a
            television image comprised of 60
            horizontal lines. The image
            transmitted was a dollar sign.
            Farnsworth developed the
            dissector tube, the basis of all
            current electronic televisions. He
            filed for his first television patent
            in 1927 (pat#1,773,980.)
            Although he won an early patent
            for his image dissection tube, he
            lost later patent battles
Philo Farnsworth
            On August 26, 1930, Philo Taylor
            Farnsworth received patent
            #1,773,980 for the first television
            system. Farnsworth, who was
            born in Beaver, Utah, produced
            the first all-electric television
            image at the age of 20.
            Farnsworth’s television patents
            covered scanning, focusing,
            synchronizing, contrast, control,
            and power. Farnsworth also
            invented the first cold cathode
            ray tubes and the first simple
            electronic microscope.

Senior Design I Project
Secret Ingredient
                   Project Objectives
   To Modify a Remote Control Toy Car
        To propose a new programmed behavior for the device
             The programmed behavior should be easily changed by means of program
        To Understand how the original device works by doing reverse engineering
        To obtain system parameters by doing pre-modification benchmarks (Speed
         and reaction time before hitting and object in the car path)
        Modify the device to accomplish the desired functions with an effective use of
         the determined benchmarks
   Easy To Use
   Economic
   Simple Circuitry
   The project will be based on the Microchip PIC18F877A
   All the original electric components of the car must be physically removed
    from the car except for the motor, battery, switch and steering actuator.
   The car must be factory equipped with either a 6V or 9.6V block type
    rechargeable battery (No AA batteries allowed)
   Each modified device should have at least three different behaviors
   Project Should be completed by the presentation date indicated in the
   Teams should be composed of three or two members. There cannot be
    more than one two members team in the class.
   If there is a single person without team I will assign that person to a
    team of my choice.
