Explain the constraints engineers faced in developing a solution and why specific design choices were made (i.e., Would adding functionality make it too big or too fragile or would a stronger design be too expensive?). Describe the design process that engineers will use to improve the technology in the future. Include details about how different engineering disciplines may be involved in that process.
All essays must be original work, and resources must be clearly cited. Guidelines for length are indicated below:
We want to hear from you! Make sure to review the Contest Requirements and FAQs, and submit your essay by March 1, 2015 at 6:00 pm EST.”
