Adaptive Intelligent Lighting System

Sponsor:  NASA Johnson Space Center

Long deep-space missions will require careful design of living environments, including simulation of daylight and circadian rhythms of illumination. This project addresses the problem of spacecraft workspace illumination with a combination of LED controls, a microprocessor, and light sensors to adapt to LED aging and other factors.

Sensor Glove Controller

Some electric wheelchair users find it difficult to manipulate the standard “joystick” wheelchair control. This project uses a sensor glove to control a model wheelchair with patterns of finger flexure.

Golf Swing Analyzer

Sponsor:  Texas Instruments

A TI wrist-mounted microprocessor/sensor is the basis for this project. Golfers can use the watch to track their golf swings in three dimensions on a display that analyzes acceleration and other important features of the swing.

Wrist-Worn Wellness Watch

Sponsor:  Texas Instruments

A TI wrist-mounted microprocessor/sensor system is used to extract heart-rate data by means of an LED-photodiode system. Exercisers can monitor their heart rate during various types of exercise by means of this portable device.
