Planned Work: (Requirements are ordered by due date)

Work - Information mining: 15.00 Time - Hours due July 15, 2017

Create a list of existing technology

The goal here is to avoid reinventing the wheel as much as possible and to speed up innovation. The accent is put on open source technologies that can be remixed.

Use some tool for gathering information about all existing technologies that can be applied in this project. You can use Diigo or simply a spreadsheet. If you use Diigo, create a tag specific to this search, to make it easier for others to find/filter the data.

Place the information in categories, as mechanical, electronics, optics, attributes or functions, etc.

This material will be used later to make a decision about what to integrate and how much to build on top of existing technologies.
