The demo platform will mainly be utilized in demonstrating the functionality of the designed system since the demo platform also allows the developer to present and demonstrate the working of the design. Presenting the system is essential in ensuring that the designed system works as required and meets the laid out system requirements.
The design requires a number of parts and instruments such as brushed DC motors, a display screen, a load, power source, and sensors. These instruments are readily available online on different e-commerce websites, and one can easily purchase, have them delivered, and utilize them easily for the final design. The main limitation of the instruments provided in the design requirements is that they are very specific. Therefore, if a specific instrument cannot be easily accessed one will have to modify the acquired instruments and this may increase the cost of the overall design.
