In stage 1, we need to interview infrastructure inspectors, do brainstorming and performing additional research about existing products. Then we narrow down the ideas to just six and evaluate them. At the end of the semester, we present our three best concepts.
In stage 2, we evaluate our three concept to select one as our final project. Next step we will develop our concept and introduce our product.
