Risk Assessment

ConstraintsHarvest the energy from the momentum of the moving bicycle.

The unit price should be affordable; the primary target is for developing countries.

The design shall be ergonomic

The product should be weather/water resistant.

It is preferable to manufacture and assemble components in-house from raw materials where feasible.

Project success will be based on how fast the technology could be reproduced or re-manufactured by individuals with low levels of training or exposure.
