Abstract
Firemen and SCUBA divers are among many hobbyists and professionals who require compressed breathing gases. Compressing air sounds like a simple enough proposition: compressors have been refined for centuries, and air is hardly expensive or difficult to collect. However, there are many more details standing between safe air and the air inside of a compressed-gas cylinder.Our gas analyzer will perform two functions. Firstly, the device measures the concentrations of the major constituents of safe breathing gas (O2, CO2, N2, and He ). Secondly, it recognizes threshold levels of common contaminants and toxins (e.g. CO, hydrocarbons, and organic materials).
Description
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440.  Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem.  This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
