Default Senior Engineering Project

Hello Folks! I am a senior in high school, and my team and I are trying to invent/innovate a product. Our problem statement is: Drivers of older model vehicles face a problem where they cannot safely view into their blind spot and look at the road when they are changing lanes. We have a survey linked below that will allow us to further understand what people want/need. This survey is not final and will have things added to it if it is not enough.

Survey Link: https://tinyurl.com/ybgj6bss

DISCLAIMER: This product will not be specific to the Z but will hopefully be able to be used by Z owners.
There are other products that have been invented that can fix a cars blind spot, but we are trying to make something better.

There's already aftermarket blind spot systems commercially available. I did the survey anyways though.

deadeye is correct.

For your Senior Project, you guys should come up with some contraption that lets people discretely go to the bathroom while they're driving down the highway (of the non-diaper variety); it'd be a million times more useful.

The main thing that we are trying to do is make something better than all the other problems. The course is designed more about the process of innovating/inventing and not actually creating the next big thing. If i had it my way, then i would just go into my garage and make random prototypes of stuff, but sadly my teacher wont make it that simple. I spent 2 weeks searching through the us patent office for this project.... not fun.

I completely agree, because having to use your empty chocolate milk bottle at 70mph is a real drag.
