The main project for our Mechanical Engineering capstone involves working in a team of 20 or so to identify a real world issue and develop a product to solve it. Our team realized that ice dams were a significant issue, and that the current solution, heating cables, tended to be prohibitively expensive. Our solution, Floe, hooks into your water system to drive a deicing fluid up to your roof to prevent ice dams.

For this project, I worked on the electronics team to help build the controls and to develop an android app that can communicate with the product to determine the status of its operation, such as current fluid levels.
