This week Team Macro Mice laid the foundation for the project at hand. With microcontrollers and cameras beginning to be ordered, the team will begin working on developing the electronic and software aspects of the project! We hope to start working with Open CV to create the image processing software. Additionally, the team now has access to a functioning 3D printer, which will be used to create the first prototypes of the project. With all this coming together, the team is excited to move forward with the first steps of conceptual design!
In addition to the work done on the design front, the team has also devoted resources towards developing and refining as clear a roadmap possible for the future of the Spiny Mouse Selfie. Exploring potential risks, deadlines, stakeholders, and potential opportunities of the project has allowed the team to prepare for anything the world can throw at us.
