Transportation Design

You are to design one of the five systems associated with a transportation vehicle (any transportation mode is acceptable: car, boat, air and space, rail) that can traverse transportation pathways for an alien.  STOP!!  You are not designing an entire vehicle, just one of the systems listed below!!   NOTE:  You can mix-and-match different features and components from different styles of vehicles if you like. The system must contain all (explained further below) components of a vehicles system. Transportation Design Assignment/Grading Criteria Written Report   You will write, at a minimum, a two-page summary (double-spaced) on the experiences you had working on this project. Discuss each of the elements used from the steps of the engineering/technological design processes, as spelled out on pages 5-7 above. You are required to write this summary, as it accounts for 40% of the grade for this project.  You will submit this at the end of the semester along with the remaining project files. 2.  Rough Sketches   You are to develop a minimum of one (1) rough sketches for your selected system (as shown on page 6) for the vehicle system for the alien. This will help you when it comes time to do the parts in TINKER CAD. Note:  Remember, it is a rough sketch, details are less important at this point of the project.  Look closely at the alien’s appearance:   a.  What will you need to consider in your system design?    b.  How will the occupants enter/exit or mount/dismount the vehicle with           ease?    c.  Also think about cargo to be loaded/unloaded. What clever storage        solutions can you add to improve your vehicle?   d.  Consider personal items and cargo. What inspiration can you take from the plant and animal kingdoms to improve your vehicle design? 3.  System Model   From the rough sketches, you will generate, in TINKERCAD, a complete 3-D model of the system you have designed, as well as a 3-D model of the individual components of your system components.    Note:  Once you have the completed model in Tinker Cad, you can click on the “Send To” button in the upper right corner, download the file to your computer, and insert it into the Engineering Notebook (explained below). Once you have done that, simply go back to Tinker Cad and separate the parts, download each part, and add it to the Engineering Notebook. This will become your parts list. Once you label and number all of the parts on each of the sheets, simply copy and paste those images to the last sheet of your Engineering Notebook. This will be your assembly instruction sheet. Please be sure to include the steps needed to assemble the parts. You do not have to be that precise with the instructions. Just give me enough detail so I understand the basics on assembly. Hint:  You may use images from the internet as inspiration to help you create the components. This might save you some time. Try to find images that have less complicated assemblies. Do not simply copy and paste the images and label them. You are required to develop your own parts/systems in TINKERCAD. You must also cite the website at the end of your write-up in the reference section. Use APA format.  Example of a 3-D model:  Railcar Suspension  ENGINEERING NOTEBOOK (Section 2 of the textbook and lecture). An Engineering Notebook is used to document all of the work you have completed on a project. It may also be used to write notes, display research done to support the project, and other items of interest. They are typically bound pages of graph paper, with all writings done in ink. The bottom has a signature block for both the individual working on that particular component, or system, with a witness block to further document the work being done.  The reason for the dual signatures, is to document the parts/components being produced belong to the company producing it. This is critical if a company wishes to obtain a patent for any of the parts, or systems being produced. It also shows ownership of the design in the event a competitor attempts to steal the idea and make it their own. Each of you will keep an Engineering Notebook, but with a twist. Instead of hand-writing the features of your components, you will simply create your design in TINKER CAD. You will make the complete design as the first page, and all other pages will show the individual components, labeled, by name, and part number. OTHER CONSIDERATIONS RELATING TO THE SYSTEM YOU SELECT  This is not part of the Grading, but things to think about as you design your system! 1.  Structural, Passenger, and Cargo.   a.  How will the operator be kept safe and secure while the vehicle is in transit?    b.  Also think about any passengers or cargo. In what ways will you reinforce your vehicle       to protect the occupants and cargo in the event of an accident?    c.  What safety features will you add?    d.  How could your vehicle design be adapted for other purposes with the alien’s world?    e.  Consider cargo, emergency, recreation, sport, work, and other. How can you make your       vehicle more automatic/autonomous? 2.  Propulsion system design Considerations:     a.  What will power your vehicle’s movement?    b.  Will it use fuel or an external force?    c.  What possible energy sources could be used?  3.  Guidance system     a.  What types of navigation equipment, information displays (GPS, Satellite, glide slope indicators) will you need for your vehicle?      b. Where will they be located? 4.  Control System     a.  How will your vehicle speed up and slow down?      b.  How will it start and stop?      c.  How easy will it be for the alien to operate your vehicle?      d.  Consider steering, and other controls?      e.  Think about what transport systems are needed to work with your vehicle?      f.  Consider signaling, route networks, traffic control, and other.  5.  Suspension     a.  Will your vehicle have wheels, axles, or springs?     b.  What type of wings will you have on your aircraft?     c.  What type of hull will your ship have?     d.  How will you keep a train vehicle in contact with rail? Environmental Conditions Considerations:     a.  How will the vehicle be safely operated in different environmental conditions? Consider       rain, ice fog, darkness, wind, and other.  b.  What possible weather and surface conditions that the vehicle will have to navigate        through?    c.  How will this influence your design?    d.  How can your vehicle be modified to travel through different environments and terrain?  Note:  Consider snow, desert, air, water, underground, space, and others.  Basic creature comforts inside the vehicle     a.  How will you make your vehicle comfortable for the occupants and cargo?      b.  Consider seating, ventilation, noise reduction, suspension, and other
