Built for Designathon UofT, 2020
Given three problems, we decided to take on the problem of stolen packages.
How we built it
We used SolidWorks to design the box, as well as for the lock mechanism which we 3D printed and connected to an Arduino to simulate the locking mechanisms.
Challenges we ran into
The Arduinos they provided lacked some functionality, so connecting it with something like a web server wasn't possible. Instead, we used Figma to represent this process and instead hardcoded values into our Arduino application that would otherwise be dynamically retrieved when a package was delivered.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
