The posture pedometer cummerbund

October 2012 Program Review

what does the cummerbund do
What does the Cummerbund do?
  • Will indicate if user has bad back posture.
  • Will display the user’s step count.
but how kevin
  • The design utilizes two inputs, two outputs, and a “brain”.

Vibration Motors

Flex Sensor

Arduino Uno

Pedometer Switch

Arduino LCD

deadlines and progress
Deadlines and Progress
  • Major Milestone
    • Finish Functional Specification v1.0
      • Deadline: Oct. 5
      • Completed: Oct. 4
  • Progress
    • Met with SrijaPidaparthy (Oct. 2)
    • Received Arduino Uno from Dr. Hoffbeck (Oct. 7)
    • Ordered Parts (Oct. 14)
    • Researched LilypadArduino Components
    • Pedometer Predicament
what s a lilypad
What’s a Lilypad?
  • LilypadArduino is a line of components made specifically for interfacing electronics with fabric.
pedometer predicament
Pedometer Predicament
  • We encountered issues with interfacing a ball and mercury tilt switch for the pedometer function.
    • Ball switch needed 30° tilt to register a contact.
    • Mercury switch needed 5° tilt to register a contact.
our solution
Our Solution…
  • Our first idea was to replace the tilt switch with an Arduino GPS Shield that would record the distance the user walked.
  • Problems
    • Problems: The GPS would not be

able to determine if the user

is walking or driving.

    • Shield is too bulky.
final decision
Final Decision
  • Our team decided to utilize a pedometer spring switch contact.
  • This mechanism is powered by a 1.5v coin battery
    • Output is ~1.5 volts when contact is open
    • Output is 0 volts when contact is closed

team concerns
Team Concerns
  • Make sure the flex sensor contours with the back.
    • We want to make sure that the sensor detects a change in back posture effectively.
  • Interfacing inputs and outputs with Arduino
    • We still have not had much experience with Arduino hardware and software
plans for progress
Plans for Progress
  • To make sure we complete our milestones we will start early on documents, testing, and continue to research Arduino hardware and software.
  • Our Plan
    • Interface Flex Sensor with Arduino
    • Interface Pedometer with Arduino
    • Determine Cummerbund Fabric
