Wearable Computing Lab 15/16
This years Wearable Computing Lab was centered on human-computer interaction. Here are the team members with their projects and links to their source repositories:
The Gauntlet of strength
A glove that can be used for basic Gesture Recognition based on pads of conductive yarn. The bluetooth interface allows the wearer to use the glove for phone calls and interfacing to Android OS.
Based on an inertial measurement unit in a shoe, the wearer is able to track his movement in indoor and outdoor locations. The system is based on an Arduino and interfaces to an Android Smartphone via Bluetooth.
Also called the Zapper, this project features a Myo Armband and the Tens muscle stimulator to transport muscle excitation of one person to another person - creating a way to control the arm of another person with your own.
A complete from-scatch design of a SmartWatch, featuring different sensors and displays. A flexible software development kit allows users to create their own software.
This group put together a glove with one inertial measurement unit on each finger, collecting data with an Intel Edison. Put together they are able to detect french sign language with minimal data. The detected signs can be displayed on an Android Smartphone.
