Hi and welcome to Integer Integrator, I’m Lucas And I’m Zack I am Ke. I’m Daisuke So the main subject of our research is a company called STEP STEP is a manufacturing company located in Dearborn,Michigan, and employs many people with disabilities whether it’s physical or mental and gives them a place to work and make a wage. A lot of these employers have various disabilities that prevent them from doing basic math and counting So to solving this problem we decided to create them a device that could count for them. By providing them accounting device we can mitigate products that are miscounted and have to be inspected later in the chain this one increase efficiency and profits for both the employee and the stuff company as a whole Hey Zach Okay, this is Arduino uno, and this is the brain of our products by implementing a simple code You can tell the Arduino to do whatever we need to do So we have our Arduino connected to an LED screen and a button, our code is telling it right here It’s telling us that with one click of a button to add one number to the LED screen and this helps us keep track of how many parts are produced by the STEP employees and this makes it a lot simpler. I’m taking charge of our the CAD drawing of our device As you can see on my laptop here I’m designing Our device in 3D. Here it shows the case. The body case of our product. This is important for us. This is important for our project because later on it is important to put all the components in here. The operator the operation of the device is actually quite simple The adjustable clamp allows it to attach to any work surface and the adjustable neck allows you to rotate the device so that you can see it better. Every time in a step employee presses the button, the account on the screen will go up by one. The idea is that every time they complete a product, they press the button and it keeps track , so that they don’t have to count themselves. If you hold the button down for a few seconds, you can reset the count to zero to start again once a box is completed. A very important part of the device is a setup procedure which is made to be specifically short and sweet. In order to test the device, we contact a STEP employee named Bryan who operates the Frankenstein manufacturing station at STEP. He utilizes a manual press to combine two parts together in order to create one part Which he places it in a box to his side He was willing to help us test the device in order to keep track of how many parts he’s producing. As you can see, every time he completes a part he presses the button on the device and the count goes up by one This allows him to keep track of how many parts he is producing While putting all of his attention into the task at hand We’re deciding how to test the device. We had several matrix that were very important to us we wanted to make sure that the device would not increase the amount of errors that were being made in the counting as well as not affecting me of time it takes to produce the parts Additionally we want to make sure that the device was easy to use and then the STEP’s employees would be willing to use it and enjoy using it as well We wanted to keep our costs lower then $150 as well as the weight below three pounds It was also very important that the device was quick and easy to set up so that it could be moved from station to station
