The four key priorities that our group will be honing in on are cost, efficiency, consistency, and safety.
Working under budget constraints, it is very important for the company to produce a model that is affordable and can be scaled up to a realistic means of transportation. In order to stay under budget, group E is utilizing a design that will use the least amount of material possible, which will, in turn, help the aerodynamics of the model, maximizing efficiency. Efficiency is important to us, as the team wants the model to be as realistic as possible. As this design is supposed to be implemented in the city of Columbus, it is important to make the design is consistency and safety. Because the AEV needs to get people from place to another both quickly and safely.
