ILT project engineers and our five students have challenged each other with their concepts for the race wheelchair. The students have suggested a very innovative, yet riskier concept that would guarantee an original wheel chair. On the other hand, the ILT concept takes a more conservative approach, resulting in a less innovative but more reliable concept. By use of a decision-matrix method, the concepts were compared. It was a very close call: after a long and enriching discussion, the whole group decided in favor of the more reliable ILT concept. Next step: develop the functional prototype until May!
