Presentation Transcript

  1. Superior Designs, Inc.Spring 2012 Approved Projects(for delivery August 2012) Instructor: Mike O’Dell

  2. Smart Fitness Trainer • Develop a system for Xbox 360, Wii or similar gaming device that simulates a personal fitness trainer • Uses image analysis/sensors to detect player’s position and movements and provides instructions/commands. • Monitors activity level, heart rate, etc and gives real-time feedback. • Sponsor: (TBD)

  3. Digital Audio Recorder (DAR) • Develop an audio version of a DVR (a.k.a. “Audio Tivo”) for the a car radio • Integrate/implement hardware to store and manipulate digital audio stream for “real-time” playback • Implement “rewind”, “fast forward,” “jump to live,” and other functions similar to those found on a DVR via a smart phone app • Sponsor: (TBD)

  4. Automotive Climate Controller • Develop a climate controller that can be retrofitted into older automobiles. Older cars have A/C and heat controls, but not climate controllers. • Design a controller that can control, via a touch-screen interface, the a/c, heating systems and the various ventilation flaps in a car. • Use a smart device for control interface (e.g., Ipod touch). • Sponsor: Dr. Zaruba

  5. Smart Home Controller • Develop a smart home controller (e.g., for things like the blinds, lights, etc.). • Use the industry standard wireless network (z-wave) defined for this purpose. • System would integrate software and hardware controllers for household devices. • Sponsor: Dr. Zaruba

  6. Air Guitar Game System • Develop a system using Kinect/cameras that plays air guitar. • System would use vision processing software to capture “moves” and score players at end of session. • Software allows live viewing, playback and detailed scoring review. • Sponsor: (TBD)

  7. Autonomous Paintball Turret • Develop a system that autonomously controls a turret-mounted paintball gun. • Device would integrate and auto-focusing camera and a paint ball gun turret with software to perform auto-tracking of targets. • Sponsor: (TBD)

  8. Personal ECG Monitor • Develop a device for monitoring at-risk individuals and making emergency calls when heart attack symptoms are recognized. • Integrate an Electrocardiograph (ECG) and monitoring software to call 911 when heart attack is recognized. • Device should unobtrusive when worn by the individual who is being monitored. • Sponsor: (Heraclea Lab?)

  9. 3D Environment Mapping System • 3D structured environment mapper (Kinect) The goal of this project would be to create an accurate 3D map of an indoor area using the Kinect device. • The device would be mounted on a rotating tripod and placed at various locations throughout the • This map would be very useful for robot navigation or virtual reality type applications. • Sponsor: (McMurrough/Heraclea Lab)

  10. Generic Autonomous Vehicle Control Module • Design and develop a sensing and control system for any hobby remote controlled vehicle that uses a standard RC receiver • Control module communicates with vehicle’s actuators/controls using standard (PPM) signal. • Integrate embedded computer, PPM module, actuators, GPS, etc. to control generic vehicle • Potential: a full blown autonomous UGV with obstacle avoidance in a matter of minutes • Sponsor: (Chris McMurrough??)

  11. Directional Sound Receiver • Design and develop a system consisting of an array of omni-directional microphones. • Adjust delays in the audio streams from microphones to reinforce sound/suppress noise. • Develop user interface to monitor and control speaker selection. • Potential application: speaker selection in a conference room/meeting • Sponsor: (Umair Sadiq?)
