1 Instrumented Football Helmet Ethical and Environmental Impact Analysis

2 Ethical Considerations

3 Testing Concerns Test continued helmet integrity FCC Certification Actual vs Measured g’s Test in a wide range of environments –Precipitation/Sweat –Large temperature Range (0-100 F) Test heat output of components Test continued helmet integrity FCC Certification Actual vs Measured g’s Test in a wide range of environments –Precipitation/Sweat –Large temperature Range (0-100 F) Test heat output of components

4 User Warnings On helmet warning – Check helmet responsiveness before use User Manual Warnings –Measurement accuracy –Packaging stability –Heat –Radio emissions next to head On helmet warning – Check helmet responsiveness before use User Manual Warnings –Measurement accuracy –Packaging stability –Heat –Radio emissions next to head

5 User Feedback Future design considerations –Add in self test with warning notification through WiFi –Add in LEDs or buzzer to indicate improper functioning of product Future design considerations –Add in self test with warning notification through WiFi –Add in LEDs or buzzer to indicate improper functioning of product

6 Environmental Impact

7 Environmental Considerations PCB fabrication and disposal have usual impact including solder Battery metals can be recycled upon battery death Radio emissions Low energy usage –All parts are run as slow as safely allowable (reduces energy use) –Li-ion battery is energy efficient PCB fabrication and disposal have usual impact including solder Battery metals can be recycled upon battery death Radio emissions Low energy usage –All parts are run as slow as safely allowable (reduces energy use) –Li-ion battery is energy efficient
