Milestone 3 and coronavirus

Hi everyone!

We hope you’re all healthy and at home during these unusual times.  

Due to the current situation, the CHIC project has been put on hold for all EPFL and HEC students.

However, this is not the case for ECAL students, even though their campus also closed. Marine will, therefore, have to continue the design part of the project, without materials and machines. She will definitely have to be super creative to cope with this lack of resources ^^’.

Despite this, our engineers were still able to discuss with Raffael and Marc on Tuesday using Zoom. They got a lot of useful feedback that will help us during the next steps of our project.

On Friday, we had Milestone 3 by video conference, during which we presented all the work done since MS2. We also reflected on the impact of coronavirus on our project. And, let’s be real. It hit us hard, and many things are now impossible or very complicated to do. As a result, we had to postpone some of our plans but, even if our project is on hold until April 19th, it’s still alive! Don’t worry, we’ll let you know as soon as things change and we will try to work a bit on the app in the meantime.

All the team sends you its positive vibes!

Stay at home and take care,

The Shockeys
