The joy of running outdoors is seldom matched by marching in place on a treadmill. Runners can enjoy the weather and go on different trails and elevations. However when indoors, runners can use a treadmill to monitor their heart rate and track their distance. The objective of RunWare by Athletic Innovations is to provide runners with an elevated running experience and to promote an active lifestyle. The RunWare product will be able to provide: Communication, Health Monitoring, Entertainment, Navigation, and Safety.As a proof of concept, the RunWare system will be fully incorporated into one jacket and an accompanying Android mobile phone application (app) will be implemented. The app will allow the runner to use voice recognition to interact with the sensors and different phone features. RunWare will also have LED lights to give the runner added safety and visibility. Furthermore, all the electronic parts of the jacket will be either waterproof or encased in a waterproof cover so RunWare can be used in all weather conditions.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440. Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem. This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
