Student working on a research project.

Self-powered Wearable Sensor Systems

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 sharp your hardware and software skills, including arduino programing, sensor, signal processing, smartphome software programing.
