We are looking for someone to put together three examples of prospective mechanisms.
These mechanisms are all ways of controlling the braking resistance of the pedals of an indoor exercise bike. The projects are just quick demonstrations to let us judge each alternative on viability and cost.
The resulting projects are not larger than the size of a desktop experiment or indoor exercise bike frame, are relatively simple mechanically, and do not need to look professional or aesthetic.
Time is very much of the essence and we are seeking someone who can produce results quickly. We would like everything finished in two weeks from now, and that includes component delivery times.
We have resources including welding equipment, CNC routers, etc, and we would prefer that fabrication is done at our premises just outside Canterbury, Kent.
- mechanical engineering
- basic fabrication skills
- ability to use Autocad to draw up parts to be cut out; ability to use Inventor a bonus
- good familiarity with different sorts of motors
- familiarity with circuits, electronics and sensors
- familiarity with Arduinos (programming not necessarily required, as we can help with this, but it helps if you're comfortable working with them.)
