Seeking students for projects prototyping a set of self-powered embedded sensor systems for pervasive computing. These projects will sharpen your hardware and software skills.
This project is to prototype a set of self-powered (such as piezoelectric, thermostat, solar, etc) embedded sensor systems for pervasive computing. A tangible exam is a body-temperature powered motion system to monitor heart beats, affective status and daily activities.
These projects will sharpen your hardware and software skills, including arduino programming, sensor, signal processing, smartphone software programming.
The specific outcomes of this project will be identified by the faculty mentor at the beginning of your collaboration.
