M1a System- and requirement analysis

System description
We wrote down our first thoughts which include the requirements which our robot has to accomplish, how it moves over court and which outside influences it will get.

Requirements list
A requirements list was prepared which recorded the game's boundary conditions and guideline for the robot.
At the end of this milestone every requirements list of each team were summarize into one.

Schedule
First schedule was created over the whole project process to ensure us an overview of the whole timed procedure.

M1b Looking for a concept

To break the setting task different trials was laid. Ideas were recorded in a morphological analysis and various overall plan were defined.

M1c Choosing a concept

At this milestone we have to choose for one specific concept. Because of the various experiments we could rule out some ideas and find a final solution. We also have to make a decision about the components, dimensions and interfaces.

Design Review

To fix almost every errors documents of each team were checked in multiple discussion forums. At the specific reviews of the subteams, an advisor, every member of the subteam and at least one of another subteam has to be attended.

The accomplished reviews were state in a rated final review.

Rating Criteria

- Design-Review-Progress, type of the accomplishment

- How was the result handled?

Performance of the minor functions

Every subsystem of the robot was activated and shown. Problems were exposed and the next steps were presented.

Rating Criteria
