A New Technology Platform
We worked with the start up, Senova Systems, to help them to design a device, from the ground up, for pH measurement based on a new technology platform that they had licensed. The technology allows for a robust pH scanner contained in a stainless steal tube that simply needs to be turned on and used. No calibration, no need to be stored in special solutions when not in use, doesn't suffer from signal drifting, and doesn't have a fragile glass probe. My goal as design lead was to complement this technology with a modern, progressive design, to provide a clear, concise user interface, and to consider the myriad use cases and device applications in the process. Our team consisted of a group of mechanical and electrical engineers, me as the design lead, a project manager, and a group of craftsmen/model makers.
