  1. The Oxygen Caddie

  2. Introduction Rex Lin – Chief Executive Officer Robin Chuang – Vice President Nathaniel Culham – Chief Financial Officer Richard Chan – Chief Operating Officer Jason Czerniej – Chief Technical Officer

  3. Overview The size and need of the market Design description Marketing Future features and applications Conclusion Demonstration Question & comment

  4. The size of the market Frost & Sullivan finds the U.S Oxygen therapy Devices Markets revenues in 2005 $ 528.2 million Estimated revenues in 2012 $ 885.9 million

  5. The Need of the market Oxygen Therapy Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) Pulmonary fibrosis Cystic fibrosis (CF) emphysema sarcoidosis

  6. The solution Our proposed product is the solution

  7. Design Overview Our product R&D team is split up into 3 departments. The mechanical, hardware, and the software department

  8. Mechanical Design Able to support the weight Special design of sensor house Keeps our circuits safe

  9. Emitter/Sensor Controller Actuator Design Overview • 3 Major modules, 3 Major challenges overcome Electrical Design Features

  10. Block diagram

  11. Sensor Our sensors uses infrared sensors Advantages -Cheap -Available -Proven -Simple Other solutions -Ultrasound -Modules such as the Sharp GP2D02

  12. Controller • We are using the PIC16F876A microcontroller from Microchip • Advantages • -Meets our processing requirements • -Cheap ($3.40 US) • -Easy to use in a prototype • Other solutions • - FPGA, web camera, HC11

  13. Actuator • Consist of only one driving IC L298 • Advantages • -Simple controlling circuits • -Cheap controlling circuits • -Many distributors • Other solutions • -Stepper motor

  14. Programming Design Programming Design Features The brain of our robot is a PIC16F876A Interpret the sensor data and determine the position of the user Check the distance from the user Control the motor movements by output the correspond signal to the motor driver for a determined period

  15. Design Overview

  16. Marketing

  17. Product and Service Highly reliable automated device that holds an oxygen tank and follows the user Low cost compared to the other solutions available for it’s benefits The best solution out there because it eliminates the burden entirely of carrying an oxygen tank Can be modified to other markets

  18. MarketAnalysis ~14 million Americans suffer from COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and 6 million treat this disease Treatment includes oxygen therapy These people can benefit from our product Not many competitors

  19. Strategy and Implementation Trial run at a host hospital to ensure reliability and to gain creditability among the health institutions Spread to more hospitals locally and expand locally and then nationally Expand to old folks homes and to individuals who can benefit from our product

  20. FinancialPlan • A profit-loss statement • Basically increase sales to increase profit • Cost decreases with mass production

  21. Future features • Various distance control • Warning signal • Tracking • A recharging module • Unique ID • Less space occupied while not in use • Power saving features

  22. Future application • Golf caddie + =

  23. Future application • Shopping cart for the future + =

  24. Future application • IV caddie • Industrial Caddie

  25. Conclusion

  26. Projections • 2006 • Working prototype I • Start prototype II • Patents • Start marketing on a small scale • Finding investors

  27. Projections • 2007 • Approvals for our are targeted markets met • Supply Chain set up • Full scale marketing Campaign • Finish prototype II • Release product • 2008 • R&D starts second product for other fields (Golf or IV Caddie)

  28. Demonstration
