We redesigned a basketball hoop that enhances the game of basketball through the application of new sensors. Who is the audience o Who do you want to reach o What do these people want to read o Assume the audience does not know what you mean The professors of the course and those that will be viewing my project Adjust the message to suit the audience o Short, simple, impactful o Outline for structure and flow o Subsections can be used Ex. Final Report Length 2 pages o Task Description An open design contest that requires an official prototype and the use of four sensors that are programmed with the use of MATLAB. The design that was decided upon was a basketball hoop that can be officially used in different settings. o Design Multiple sensors were added to the basketball hoop in order to accommodate for the significant changes it will bring to the game. These sensors include a camera, infrared sensors, keypad, and flex sensor. Multiple types of feedback are present through the two timers, speaker and LED’s. o Programming The program needed to be user friendly and prompt the user for which mode they wanted to use: Practice mode or Game mode. Practice mode uses the infrared Tristan Collette March 29, 2016 Technical Writing Workshop sensor, counter, camera, timer, speaker and LED’s. Game mode uses all sensors and feedback. o Results How do we know that the design was successful? o Discussion What worked, what didn’t, and what will improve the product? o Conclusion Figures: Caption and Figure number Appendices Integrate them into the text Vocabulary Precision Clarity Brevity
