Hello guys,   Have been busy for a while, shifting work place and buggy internet.   So here comes this weeks blog post.   So far we tried to sense vitals, struggled capturing the Data learning the launchpad and the buggy Energia IDE and my noise problem, (well found out that was because of Ground Loop We fixed a little but still it exists, had to hold my breath for few seconds to get a proper values) . Still we made things move forward, well spent sleepless nights trying to con ...
Hello guys,   This week we gonna send the data received by the Edison to a local along with a Video feed. For now I'm sending out the ECG data, and the video feed to a local cloud, our pc.   All the source files can be found in our Github repository.   Here I'm sending ECG data captured to Edison, from there (along with a video feed) to the FTP server, a php script fetches the data and plots the ECG graph and a visual too. We are using Wamp, our windows PC becomes the local c ...
Hello guys,   Sorry fornot updating for two weeks, my PC crashed lost almost all the files and I was also kinda stressed.. Trying to redo a lot stuffs, have been busy too.. Here comes this week's update...... So this blog covers the Bluetooth part, Sending Data Collected by Launchpad to Intel Edison.But first we need to make them speak.     I'll be using the cheap HC-05 Bluetooth modules for this purpose. The Reason : The Bluetooth booster pack had some UID issues when conn ...
Hello guys,   How its going?   Here is this weeks write up, I just put up everything together and placed them on my cycling t-shirt . I've made a change with the pulse sensor, I'm currently using a one based on MAX30100, though its an obsolete product I found it to be simple and also capable of giving SpO2 Level too.   Some soldering works Some more soldering..... Skipping some soldering photos...   Well I connected the Pulse, Temperature, Light and Accelerometer ...
Hello Guys, This week's blog is here, so started working on IMU and Light sensors.   I had a few issues with the Sensors booster pack BMI160 and the Energia, I'm still working on it but for now I'm using a MPU6050. Well its a I2C accelerometer and gyroscope.   You can get the library and the examples over here, this guy has done a great job. You might get a few warnings when compiling the free fall example in Energia IDE. Just open the MPU6050.cpp file and remove ';' on the #endif s ...
Hi guys,   Have been busy lately, so here is this week's post. Sensing Breathe and Temperature.   I came across this conductive elastic chord which changes its resistance as it is stretched, so decided to use it as a respiratory sensor. 1m of the chord has a resistance about 10k and increases as elongated.     The setup: The chord is without any insulation so I had to tape them on my t-shirt to avoid shorts.     Just a analog read program with increased d ...
Hello Guys,   This weeks write up is ECG and Pulse.   For ECG signal conditioning I have used AD8232 Board.   And a Simple Pulse sensor from eBay.     The Setup & Pulse displayed in the Sharp LCD.     We also obtained the ECG waveform it isn't perfect probably due to bad ground.     I  was actually so dumb that I forgot to notice the Serial Plotter in Enegia IDE, had to copy data to Excel and Plot it .        ...
Hello guys,   I'm so excited, recieved the kit finally.     Nothing gives the Happiness of seeing a new piece of Hardware...     How could some one start developing without the blink??     and some fun with Sensor Booster Pack and Sharp Display     What else?? Somemore fun with UART over BLE, it was cool actually. well colors do bring happiness...     To be frank this is the first time I'm having a hands-on experience with ...
Hello guys,   I'll be receiving the kits in a day or two, so excited about it, this weeks write-up is a short video describing our game plan. What we have actually planned to do.   We actually made a small change, We replaced the Rpi with Intel Edison, we wanted to try it out with Edison.         Cheers ...
Hello guys, hope you all are doing good. Seems there is some delay in shipping the kits,so I was wonder what to post for the blog, I thought of posting the Video streaming and Cloud part, but i'll be too vague without the T-shit part,so decided to write the reason to make this T-shirt.   There are a lot of health monitors, activity trackers around us, locally connected to mobile or to a cloud.But still they lacked something.   We saw paralyzed and elderly people, who always require s ...
Hi guys, before I start I wanna confess "I'm not good with the writing stuffs"   Monitoring Elderly and Disabled Patients is always been a challenge and watching them over when they are left alone is much more challenging.   Here's a short description of what we've planned to do.   We wanted to make something that could monitor them,when they are left alone...We wanted to do something else other than the usual health monitors.   So we decided to make a T-shirt to will al ...
