 Patch structure – showing levels of encapsulation and how you might organise your patches for the different modes of operation.

 Algorithms you intend to use for each of the modes. You could present some ideas you have developed, and/or reference and discuss some literature you have found in research.

 Development timeline –present a Gantt chart here with timeline vs tasks. The idea is to set yourself some targets / milestones. You could create this is MS Excel.

The post should be a maximum of 1000 words in length.

Marks will be awarded for an engaging and well thought out post, and for clarity in communicating your ideas.
