3. Pi the Prototype
- to test and validate an idea or hypotheses. This follows the fail fast design philosophy where it is best to identify the good and bad ideas early. Building a prototype in a matter of days is acceptable even if it is too big, expensive, consumes too much power and is a bit slow, if it provides a mechanism to prove or disprove the feasibility of an idea.
- to validate hardware design. Before commissioning a large production run or fully optimising a design, a prototype can be used to validate the electronic design and sensor capabilities within a desired operating environment.
