problem identification
Problem identification
  • People driving into washes
  • Cars get stuck, and people drown.
  • Innovative solution created by analyzing problem
sources of information please refer to research report page 2
Sources of information (please refer to research report page 2)
  • Collaborated with three experts
    • Dr. Rez, theoretical physicist on the pulse ultrasonic sensor.
    • Dr. Mushtag, Department of Transportation on pressure transducers in washes
  • One expert collaborate via email:
    • Mr. Kaminski, engineer on the theory of our product as a practical solution.
  • Websites and videos via Discovery Education
problem analysis
Problem analysis
  • Collaboration with three experts in the field of water depth.
  • Research on news articles of people who got stuck driving through floods
  • Only preventative measures found was “stupid motorist law” and D.O.T. response team
  • Data was not conclusive on the number of deaths directly related to cars getting trapped in water while driving over road.
review existing solutions
Review existing solutions
  • No existing solution for determining depth of water in road and potential driving hazard warning system was found.
  • Other systems which use similar technology found in our depth sensor were:
    • Back up camera (for when in reverse)
    • A thermal camera that sees animals at night
    • A GPS unit.
  • Our team synthesized technology used for different applications to make the Wonder Water Sensor which include the GPS and pulse ultrasound sensor.
team solution a two part system
Team solution: A two part system
  • GPS indicator of flood zones using department of transportation data
  • Pulse ultra sonic senor detecting the depth of the water
  • Connected to the car computer system
  • In 2006, the National Weather Service reported 59 deaths in the United States due to flash floods, the third highest in weather-related deaths, surpassed only by heat and tornadoes.
  • Fifty percent of flash flood fatalities occur when drivers try to cross flooded washes.
  • We have an early warning system for cars
  • It will save lives!
  • Retail cost would be approximately $250
    • GPS=$85
    • Long range sensor=$150
  • Parents at PTO
  • Phoenix Department of Transportation
  • ASU Department of Theoretical Physics
  • Internet Web page (www.realityeducation.com/geekbots)
  • Scottsdale Community College robotics team
  • Ford Factory Employee, Michigan
  • Used Infomercial as product delivery
  • We thought as there was no existing solution, we would create one,
  • Thus the Wonder Water depth sensor was born!
