Project Description

Many medical emergencies occur inside a home. We aim to detect these for a quick automated emergency response with a low-cost and low-maintenance form of sensing. The project involves data processing acoustic signals through hardwood, classification through machine learning, and decision making. Ideally the student will be interested in working through Summer into the Fall semester, with a possibility of extending the project.

Pre-requisites

Experience in programming with MATLAB is highly desired Interest in medical data processing Experience in computer graphics is a plus
