The project will be graded based on an interim design report, a final presentation, and a final report.

  • Design report (week 2) - 15% of the final result
  • Presentation (week 8) - 15% of the final result
  • Final report (week 8) - 70% of the final result

The design report must be submitted through Canvas before 11:59 pm on May 7th, 2017. This report must contain a system-level description of the proposed system. It must also contain a detailed specification of the various components in this system as well as a test and integration plan for the components and the overall system. Finally, it must contain a detailed planning for the remainder of the design and development process.

At the end of the project, a video presentation and final report are due. The video presentation must be submitted through Canvas before 11:59 pm on June 22th, 2017. The video should demonstrate your design in action and explain the design concept and motivate your teams main design decisions. The final report must be submitted through Canvas before 11:59 pm on June 25th, 2017. The final report must discuss the final system-level design, all of its components, the integration of these components, and results from the tests carried out to verify the correct operation of the system.

Each team member needs to contribute to both the design report as well as the final report. The contribution of each team member needs to be clearly marked in the report and it needs to reflect its actual contribution to the technical content of the project.

The reports and videos are subject to peer review. Each student must review 1 design report, 1 video, and 1 final report. The reviews are due one week after the submission deadlines. You will only receive your grade for 5XIB0 when you submit all your reviews. The final grade is determined by the responsible lecturer who will use these peer reviews as input when determining the final grade. He may also look at other aspects such as (but not limit to) your performance in your team or the quality of your reviews.

In addition to the above mentioned reports, we will also organize a demonstration on June 23th during which each team has to show the performance of its system on the actual planet. The schedule for this demo will be announced later.
