Helmet Biometric Data Acquisition (ENGR 110, Fall 2015)
Students: Isaac Stratfold, Tony Caballero, Victor Ojeda
Advisor: Jes Kuczenski
The team created a Personal Data Acquisition Center where a car driver can measure his or her heart rate and any sort of movement of their body through an accelerometer. The final design consists of 3 components: a 3D printed case to attach to the helmet, electronic components to measure x-y-z acceleration and heart rate, and code to interact with iOS. This device will inform the driver how their heart rate changes as he or she accelerates or decelerates. The students hope that with this device, drivers will be more self-aware and exercise better control on the road.
