NeoDext is a wearable device that provides feedback to the user upon the tightening of a screw in response to smaller manufacturers' desire for increased standardization on the production line.
We built a wearable device that provides feedback to the user upon the tightening of a screw -without interacting with the screwdriver. In the future, a similar wearable device could be utilized to enforce quality control for any task.
The goal was to develop a tool or a tool-set that can assist and/or support a specific group of people in doing their work. While total automation remains an expensive option, smaller, low-budget manufacturers can benefit from enforcing standards throughout the production line.
I focused on the design of the electrical PCB, CAD modeling, and visual concept design. I also conducted numerous company interviews with Danfoss, Linak, and Swienty regarding their respective assembly line processes and enforced the design process throughout the course of the project.
