Free ticketed event
Engineers regularly use various sensing modalities to develop a better understanding of a user’s surroundings as well as personal health analytics. This is especially true for wearable consumer devices and personalized medical devices, which are becoming increasingly important in health monitoring systems. Accessibility to open platform electronics (Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Edison) and sensing motes, enable students to concentrate on developing novel applications and focus on design and usability issues. Using the implementation of these ideas in junior level curriculum not
only prepares students for Capstone Design projects but also builds a strong foundation in the iterative design process. The specific design experience examples are from Biomedical engineering coursework but can be easily adapted for other engineering disciplines as well.
The workshop will explain the objectives, share examples of course modules and allow time for development and discussion: 2 presenters from 1 universities. Introduction & course coverage (30 min)
Development of Course Modules (60 min)
Working with Kits (60 min)
Discussion and Wrap up (30 min)
In order to have a healthy discussion the organizers will contact the attendees and ask them to pick a course where they would like to add hand-on activities. Participants will be asked to bring a laptop.
