The Irving K Barber Learning Centre proposes the “Active Workstation” project to a group of engineering Capstone students. Team 41 is the student group selected to bring the project to fruition. The workstation incorporates two under desk bikes along with an adjustable desk and a web-application. Students are able to study while pedaling on the under desk bike. Their usage statistics are tracked through a web application. The students log-In to the application using their CWL username to record distance travelled, current RPM (speed), calories burnt, and total time spent on the workstation. This document discusses the design elements of the completed product. All design choices are made in relation to the requirements specification document; requirement code met will be in brackets.
