Final Project Proposal

The presentation of your final project proposal will take place in class on Thursday the 28th of February.

Presentation Information

  • Your presentation should be a maximum of 10 minutes (less is fine if you get your idea across)
  • After each presentation we'll open up for a couple of questions from the class.
  • Compose a slide show for your presentation, which you then turn in through MySchool.

Things to Remember

  • Remember to use various concepts you have learned in the course so far.
  • Everyone in the project group should get a chance to speak, so divide the presentation up among yourselves.
  • Use diagrams, photos, sketches, rendered images, etc. to illustrate your ideas.
  • Feel free to use the classroom white-board as well during the presentation.

Presentation Structure

The presentation itself should be structured to be clear and informative. Imagine that you are asking for project funding and you are addressing your peers who will be reviewing your application.

I recommend that you use the following structure (variations are ok):

Project Overview

  • Project name
  • Project “slogan” or “tagline” (like “Safer traffic training with VEs!”)
  • Group members

Motivation (Scenario or Goals)

  • Describe a problem you want to address with your VE.
  • Describe why the world would be a better place if everyone had your VE.
  • Do your best to describe what having your VE would be like.
  • Sketches would be cool.

Related Previous Work

  • Mention previous research, products or projects that also try to achieve similar goals as your project.
  • State how yours will be different (it is not a requirement that your project be state-of-the-art, but it is good to think about this).

Approach

  • How are you thinking of creating this environment?
  • What special features do you want it to have that help you reach your goals?
  • What other seemingly useless but cool features do you want it to have? (perhaps they're more useful than you think, give that a thought)

Challenges and Expected Results

  • What do you expect to be the hardest thing in your project?
  • If you won't have time to do everything, what do you want to make sure your prototype can at least do at the end of the course?
  • Use this opportunity to “control expectations”.
