A project team of 9 people as part of R&D group has been assembled to develop the prototype of smart glasses for cyclists. The team is tasked to start from defining the product based on customer requirements and market conditions, designing the hardware and software aspects of the smart glasses, and performing various tests to ensure the quality and reliability of the smart glasses prototype.

The development of the smart glasses is the responsibility of the R&D group, the team project consists of people with unique skills from various groups in R&D organization. The success criteria adopted for this prototype:

● Capable of communicating to the smartphone using Android, iOS, and Windows phone Operating Systems

● Capable of displaying the information associated with cycling, such as: heart rate, calories burned, distance traveled, speed, and all other data specified in the prototype specifications

● Pass the field testing during beta-release phase to limited users

● Pass the extreme or corner-case testing in the lab, such as humidity, temperature cycling, water resistance, and all other tests specified in the qualification plan

Upon the conclusion of this project, a well-designed and reliable prototype will be delivered to other groups such as manufacturing and production, as well as sales and marketing, for further developments to enter the market and high-volume manufacturing.


This project is only available to students, staff, and faculty of Portland State University
