Our proposed product will be able to detect and react to a wide range of life-threatening conditions as they occur by monitoring several vital statistics, such as the heart rate activity, respiratory rate, and temperature. The product will also emphasize on intelligent processing of the available sensor data in order to make predictions and conclusions about the driver's ongoing variations like drowsiness. Once a life-threatening emergency is detected, our product will inform the driver with the calculated predictions and health evidence and indicate suggested course of action for risk minimization by displaying data on an LCD screen or through different color coded LEDs. Finally in its optional package the product will establish contact with appropriate intervention party providing GPS location data as well as record of preceding developments. This product will be very useful to drivers with many various backgrounds. Elderly and young drivers susceptible to higher risks due to lower driving capabilities due to health limitations or experience would benefit from this product as well as their care-takers due to its provision of effective emergency response mechanism and a piece of mind.
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.
