  13. 13. PLANNING SUMMARY Unfortunately a projects lifecycle never goes as planned Ran into a few road blocks that required change in our project plan With scheduling conflicts and the progress we made each week the Microsoft Project plan ended up becoming useless

  18. 18. IF WE HAD TO DO IT AGAIN….. Would have started with the TPAD off the bat Did a better job documenting the project as we worked on it, instead of assembling majority of the documentation at the end of the quarter
  19. 19. FUTURE WORK Integrate the webcam Connect to a web server for automatic updating Proximity sensing to save power SD-card implementation
  20. 20. SPECIAL THANKS Dr Antonio Mondragon All the faculty and staff that made our last 5 years memorable
