QuestionsConcerns Raised During Presentation General Written Questions amp Concerns General Comments amp Compliments Possible Design Modifications Project Plan Updated P re Prototype Des lg n Layout Drawings Website Current Plan of Action j Post MidTerm Analysis QuestionsConcerns Raised During Presentation 1 High end car owners don t perform their own service Many are car enthusiasts who enjoy working on their own car and don t allow others to work on it 2 How do you prevent damage to the tire Ball bearings or rollers may be implemented to reduce the friction Also the lifting tire braces can be adjustable in distance apart a vd question applies to any jack and the suspension sy t designed to accommodate this problem up b thgjkillowable lift height f39 Post MidTerm Analysis QuestionsConcerns Raised During Presentation 4 Will the scooper mechanism be locked while in operation Yes we intend to use a selflocking lifting device 5 Can this be marketed to other cars outside of lowprofile ones at Absolutely but it is aimed at lowprofile cars because mostratjtps 0 and jacks already on the market today provide adequate height to perform service on average vehicles 6 Isn t another jack needed for changing a tir39e9 The vehicle will be raised enough that another sg port such as a jack stand can be inserted once the front r reyend is raised This is a common practice for lifting man vehIL les today Post MidTerm Analysis QuestionsConcerns Raised During Presentation 7 Is this adjustable for wheel size Yes the scooper mechanism takes advantage of space in the wheel well that all cars have so it should be useful for all size wheels The lifting tire braces are also adjustable in separation distance 8 Isn t this the same level of safety as another jack Yes but it is much easier to raise it to a significant height and 1 then put a support underneath to sufficiently make it safeen u to perform service I 2 9 Could the pads holding the tire rotate some No because the pads holding the tires will berei quotrced to the lifting tire braces to prevent rotation A sig icanb mount of stress will be directed to this location so rotatiorny thfpads is not favorable and needs to be prevented Post MidTerm Analysis General Written Questions amp Concerns 1 It seems to be a pain to raise it and then put in a jack stand 1x Already addressed 2 I thought low profile jacks already exist 1x Not to the specification we are pursuing with jack mobility 3 If the tire is blown out will gripping the tire be easy Yes because rubber is flexible and provides good frictio 4 Is it worth it if you need to switch supports to39pe wheel rotations or tire changes 2x V5 if Yes because this is the only way to lift the ehigj s in the target market An easy to use jack stand can b7 secilm conjunction with the scooper 0quot 07 N Post MidTerm Analysis General Written Questions amp Concerns Drawingssketches in presentation seem unclear 1x They are preliminary designs and the layout drawings and part drawings will be more detailed The prototype was very clear Scoop will need to lock into place to hold the wheel 2x We will implement a locking mechanism Using a hand crank to raise scooper might bedi r Most jacks use them 9 Post MidTerm Analysis General Written Questions amp Concerns Will lifting each of four tires in succession make it harder for each one because of the angle of one raised corner of the car 1x When the vehicle is already raised lifting another tire will bring the vehicle closer to level Also the same weight will be lifted If one side of the low profile car is raised will other side of the car body hit the ground 2x Already addressed for the frontrear Not an issue for thgsidquot 6f the vehicle It doesn t seem as though friction especially addition of ball bearings would be enough tgghbld the tire f Iquot 1x 2 There will be a lock on the two braces Post MidTerm Analysis General Comments amp Compliments Very marketable Good design Very practical Elegant design Looks like a great product Great idea Post MidTerm Analysis Possible Design Modifications Utilization of peg for free rotating scooper pads Locking mechanism for scooper braces Ball bearings on scooper pads to reduce wear from tire friction Overall the design was received very39w the class understood the product bein presented As a result there are verny design modifications
