Code Implementation for Sensor Suite

By: Li Chen Yeh, ATECHTOP Manufacturing Engineer Edited and approved by: Robyn Goss, ATECHTOP Project Manager The original temperature sensor, DS18B20, is not compatible with the pulse sensor because the temperature sensor requires 625ms of Arduino processing for acquisition of body temperature. This information can be found in the following link. The pulse sensor implements an interrupt every 2ms, as […]

ATECHTOP Project Requirements Verification

Of ATECHTOP’s 22 project requirements, 19 were successfully verified.  The 3 requirements that were not met pertained to the Arxterra control panel.  The ATECHTOP specific control panel modifications were discussed with Arxterra’s webmaster, Jeff Gomes, early on in the semester.  The conclusion was that the modifications would be integrated into Arxterra at a later time.  […]

Design Evolution of ATECHTOP

By Robyn Goss : ATECHTOP Project Manager The initial ATECHTOP design was loosely based off of the biometric smartwear designed by OMSignal. OMsignal’s largest objective is the gathering and interpretation of biological signals to turn these into usable feedback for insight. [OMsignal introduction] The apparel is capable of monitoring heart rate and breathing activity while an […]
