Engineering and Detail Design of
motorized door system.
Design Specifications for
Component/Vendor Sourcing & Quoting.
Fabrication, Assembly and Debug
of prototype mechanisms.
The prototypes used a bi-directional
a force-sensing resistor as a
I designed it like a van
sliding door in that
it slid in tracks to fit flush
To eliminate micro-switches, I specified
a motor-current-sensing circuit to
stop the door at the ends of travel,
as well as for obstructions.
