    • UMBREMECHSENIOR DESIGN PROJECTBy Josue Figueroa
    • Agenda Introduction Purpose Objectives Specifications Final Product Parts Fabricated Control System  Parts  Features  Functionality  Battery Facts  Flow Diagram of Code Future Considerations Conclusion
    • PurposeDesign a mechanism to electrically operate an umbrella which allows a wheelchair-bound individual w/ limited mobility to shield themselves from precipitation and direct sunlight, w/out the need of physical strength and/or assistance from others.
    • Solution – UmbreMech!
    • Objectives Provide full coverage for the wheelchair occupant Allow clearance between the occupant and the umbrella while deployed Design an easy-to-use user interface to control the umbrella Intended for electric wheelchair use.
    • Specifications Attachable/Detachable Shade < 40 in. diameter, Case < 12 in. diameter 12 VDC/2.5 Amps Product ~ 30 lbs Height of arm < 2 ft Corrosion resistant material Deployment/Retraction time < 20 seconds
    • Final Product – Exploded View
    • Parts – FabricatedRapid Prototyped Turntables FlangesGears Motor Mount/Gear Mounting/ Umbrella Support Motor Mounts & Pulley Turntable Supports

    • Parts – Control System (Cont.d)
    • Features - Control System Rotation – 360 Tilt - 45 in either direction Flip Up/Down Power Saving Modes – Using a counter  Save motor power when idle or in the starting position Location Maintained in Memory - EEPROM  Fail-Safe with Power Loss
    • Functionality – Block Diagram Orange Arrows = Power Connections Blue Arrows = Input/Output
    • Battery Facts Current setup uses 12V 9Ah Sealed Lead Acid Rechargeable Battery (Inexpensive for demonstration purposes) Typical electric wheelchair battery is 24V 600Ah  Design is adaptable.  Motor drivers can handle 24V input  Voltage Regulator (LM317) needed for Arduino - 24V to 12V decrease.
    • Flow Diagram of Source Code Legend Conditional Statement (Is Button Pushed?) Rotate Corresponding Motor in Certain Direction
    • Future Considerations Further Constraints Reduction of Cost and Weight Further Safety Design Flexibility Profitability of Design Incorporate Sun Sensor Smartphone Application
    • ConclusionAs the handicap populationgrows, technological innovations such asthe UmbreMech will service the growingneed for automated systems onwheelchairs.
