As we prepare the prototype for the final delivery, we identified the need to model and print a box to conceal all the wiring, the PCB, and the battery. This box includes its own lid to protect and hide the components, providing a more professional finish to the product.

Additionally, during the final tests, we found that the base required a non-slip material to prevent the device from sliding on the surface when it moves. To address this issue, we applied silicone stickers to the base.

Adding silicone in order to provide more friction between the resting surface and the device's base.

Finally, we noticed that the base's dimensions did not provide enough weight, causing the product to tip over when the motors operated. To prevent this, we implemented a geometry that adapts to the current camera base, providing more stability to the device during use and enhancing the overall appearance.

Finally, we have successfully achieved our goal of creating a camera that utilizes IoT technology and can be connected through a smartphone. This project allowed us to integrate various disciplines, including 3D design, electronics, and software development, resulting in a fully functional and reliable prototype. By addressing challenges such as stability, connectivity, and user interface, we ensured that our Vision360 camera is both user-friendly and efficient.

Through this project, we have not only built a sophisticated device but also gained invaluable experience in IoT technology. This knowledge will enable us to apply IoT solutions to a wide range of future projects, enhancing our ability to innovate and solve complex problems. We are excited about the possibilities this expertise opens up and look forward to continuing to push the boundaries of technology and design.
