Real-Time Tracking of Human Arm Movements

Project Overview

The goal of this project is develop a portable system designed to capture the users arm movements. This data can be fed into other software to analyze and predict the said arm movement. The mobile device should be small and battery powered, and be able to be kept on the body of the person using it. A wired connection to other computer equipment should not be a requirement, but can be a possibility for transferring previously collected data.

The sensors on the users arms will also be custom built to allow them to be as small and low power as possible. The ideal situation would be to have the sensors small enough to wear under the users shirt, so as to not obstruct daily life. The battery should also last long enough to not require a frequent charge.
