Scope has two during the development of the scanner functional test series designed to test the operation and use of the scanner on location in Kenya. In the first functional model were an existing one sensor and light source processed. This mainly tested the entire system and context of the scanner in Kenya, such as sending information, the calculation modules, the app ed
The second working test model worked on the basis of Arduino and contained the new light source designed by Scope and much cheaper to produce. This model mainly served to improve the heat management, the required robustness and other design assumptions, such as the construction with the metal housing and the load To test. In the final product is the electronics final and optimisations were performed on the calculation modules, the embedded software and the app.
It comprehensively testing in Kenya (and later also in other places in the world) provided valuable feedback and interesting points for improvement such as the ergonomic improvement of the handle angle. A intuitively fitting grip for the scanning of soil, it turned out that a different location had been designed than at that time in the model.
