In the mechanical engineering capstone course, each team was tasked with designing and testing a solution to one of many problems introduced by autonomous vehicles. My team's design objective was to create a device that mitigates motion sickness effects to allow for technology use in a moving vehicle. The device holds a tablet and rotates according to the angular velocity of the vehicle in order to help the passenger see what they are feeling, thereby removing the neural mismatch that may cause carsickness. During this project, we conducted preliminary interviews and research, iterated through several designs, and tested our final product with several participants.
