Public Summary Month 5/2011

During this period the team has been working in the following work packages:

WP3: Mechanical design of the device

WP4: Mechanical design implementation

WP5: Electronic and control system design

WP6: Electronic design implementation

This work matches with the initial schedule of the Project. It is remarkable the construction of the prototype (both mechanics and electronic implementation) has started during this period. The first 3D design of the device is finished and available under SolidWorks; see a sample of the sewing head in the following figure:

During this period we have continued working in the following work packages, as it was initially scheduled. These steps are slow at they need high development effort but they allow to carry out a fast implementation of the prototype afterwards:

WP 2 Overall design of the device, combining electronics and mechanics

WP 3 Mechanical design of the device

WP 5 Electronic and control system design

Up to now there are no significant deviations from the scheduled work. And as a result of these tasks, there are available CAD 3D designs of the whole device; the implementation of these deigns will start during the next reporting period.

During the period, the experiment has carried out these activities:

- Fixing the functional requirements of the device: UPC (Intexter and IOC) has elaborated a requirement list considering all the medical requirements as well as mechanical and electronic constraints.

- Taking into account the requirements established in the Task 1, IOC and Intexter have developed a general design concept for the device .

- The mechanic and electronic design of the device has started.
