Deployable structure—input subsystem

Following an initial group effort, an actuated system was defined to be embeded in a rain harvesting system. As water collection is dependent upon the quality of runoff surface, the system would incorporate a mechanism to only open in the presence of rain. When closed, the structure would insulate catchment surface, this improving collected water quality.

This project functions as the input subsystem in order to equip the system with a sensing capability—the structure will be aware of when it is raining. Once a threshold is surpassed, a virtual and physical model is actuated.
