Step 1 - Brainstorming

In this First Step, we discussed different approaches to building a blind spot alert that works perfectly in situations where people cab get hit by a car and where accidents occur.

Step 2 - Design

In the second step, we came up with sketches, designs and prototype.

For our prototype, we made use of electronic components such as LED, Buzzer,Battery, solar panel, wires and sensors in order to detect a car coming from a blindspot.

We also made use of cardboxes to design the exact scenario of someone getting hit and occuring accidents.

Step 3 - Implentation

In this step : 1. We implemented the design of the blinspot alert.

2. We also made use of the car.

3. Painted the whole cardbox and car.
