The Real-Time Air Monitoring System (RTAMS) combines the sensing and response of many crucial monitoring devices into one "multi-monitor". This real-time home monitoring system will be capable of detecting various gases and other environmental factors and shall respond accordingly. Detected substances include natural gas, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, smoke (particulate) and humidity (H2O in the air). Temperature will also be monitored in order to establish covariance in the detected substances with heat. Real-time responses to sensed information by initial completion of this project include delivery of SMS alerts and initiate a ventilation system and/or initiate an electrical circuit break to turn off the suspected source.
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.
