From my meeting with Justin last Friday, my goal for next week is to try and come up with a thesis that goes beyond summarization/description. My goal is to make a thesis that takes a stance and answers the question "so what?"
Additionally, I originally wanted to focus on SPAUN, Deep Mind, and Lane Assist vehicles but I have determined that since Deep Mind and Lane Assist are much more similar than SPAUN, it would make more sense to focus on SPAUN vs Deep Mind. As I begin to write, I may decide to bring back Lane Assist vehicles to help strengthen my arguments if needed. But that will ultimately depend on what my thesis is arguing for.
My next step is to begin writing sections describing SPAUN and Deep Mind so that I can get the gears working in order to come up with a thesis. Hopefully, by writing about SPAUN and Deep Mind, this will help raise some arguments that my thesis can be based around. Again, the ultimate goal for this week is to come up with a thesis that goes beyond summarization. Another minor goal is to start writing and have a first draft in the following week.
I will aim to have a first draft in the following week mostly because of the Presentation Boards and revising some issues such as argumentation and overall writing errors. I will also solidify my thesis where it will take a stance so that I can progress with just the writing part of my literature review. I think once I come up with a first draft and a solid thesis, the rest should come together much quicker.
