With all of my class midterms behind me, I have recently been spending an excessive amount of time on 2.009: Product Engineering Processes.  Last week I helped present the 'assembly model' of my team's project.  My team is working on an automatic, electronic bike lock idea that I proposed several weeks ago.  To unlock your bike, you simply press a green button on lock, and an RFID reader senses if you're nearby.  If you are close by, which it can tell from a small wristband or keyfob device, a solenoid retracts a deadbolt and the lock swings open.  My job was to create a housing for all of the components and securely integrate them into one piece.  I did some renderings of the solid model we made, so here's one with the side cut away you can see what it would look like, along with the product contract which contains preliminary specifications for the product.

Sound cool?  I sure hope so!  Still have some concerns?  That's okay, because we still have a lot of work to do before we're finished, even though the class deadlines are approaching quickly.  Until next time!
