Abstract

The purpose of this project was to evaluate the educational level of the WPI community on automobile safety devices and develop an interactive medium through which visitors can establish a better understanding of the technology. A video presentation and museum exhibit were constructed together to educate the community on the criteria of history, purpose, and functionality for several automotive technologies. The presentation component incorporates pictures, videos, and diagrams to portray the educational material about each technology, while the actual exhibit includes physical components from each category to aide in visualization of these devices. This project produced positive feedback from members of the community as well as several recommendations for future revisions of this project.
