Mechanical Engineering Capstone Design Project

As my senior capstone design project my group and I decided to tackle the problem of 1 on 1 communication on construction sites. Based on customer interviews and environment observation, we found that while walkie talkies are most commonly used, they are not the best for communicating with a single person on a job site. After exploring current market solutions, we set off to design a product that would allow for a worker to single out another employee for 1 on 1 communication while also maintaining the ability to contact an entire group. Below are two concept sketches I created to illustrate a few of the different design ideas we were considering.
