When choosing technical consultants, companies often only focus on a long list of technical skills. For electronic engineers that typically includes hardware design, software design, embedded software, programming, circuit design, microcontrollers, etc.
Many engineers underestimate the importance of interpersonal communications. Companies often fail to evaluate communication skills when engaging a product development firm. Designing and troubleshooting electronic products and embedded software is much more efficient when the engineers are professional, outgoing, and can explain problems and technologies. Here our engineers are running a trade show booth for products they designed.
This was a new technology introduction and the end result of the show was a national account contract and several more national account contacts as a result of our engineers’ ability to present the technology.
The project was to debug, troubleshoot and redesign portions of the control and data acquisition components of a motorcycle dynamometer. The project was quite challenging due to the high rate of speed and the short time of the drive cycle. As delivered the system was electrically noisy. The video shows a lug down test run.
