With the first few months passing by, the Concord High School InvenTeam has been making promising advances! Our problem:
Hazard of infection and injury among Christiana Hospital linen workers.
In order to tackle this invention, our team has divided into mini-teams. Each mini-team has been tasked with creating a piece of the invention, which, when put together, will assemble the final solution.
1. Metal Detection
- This group will create a metal detector that can differentiate between dangerous and safe materials, and send an appropriate signal to the rest of the invention.
- This group will receive a signal from Detection, and display appropriate messages on a screen, flash a light, and potentially play a sound in order to alert the workers of dangerous materials.
3. Clothing Removal
- This group will deploy a method of physically removing the hazardous linens and metals along the conveyor belt when signaled to do so.
4. Central Control
- The central control behind the invention, this group will utilize Arduino to manipulate information and send and receive appropriate signals among the invention.
