Assignment 1 – State Transition Diagram
Overview
This assignment requires you to develop a state chart diagram for an Oral B Braun 5000 electric
toothbrush. Starting from the user manual you should first analyze the functionality of the toothbrush
and its interaction with the SmartGuide and then, using suitable software, produce a state transition
diagram which covers both. Your state chart diagram will be demonstrated subjected to tests you have
developed.
