If you are interested in sensors, communicating with sensors, building a network of sensors, or applying sensors to your research or a challenging problem in biomedical, environmental, consumer electronics, or wearable sensor applications, EE484 can help.
EE484 is offered this Spring (2019) and offers a fun and challenging engineering design opportunity for advanced juniors, seniors, and graduate students in engineering to fully design a system using sensors to achieve a defined purpose and function. Sensor systems include not only component sensors (accelerometers, magnetic sensors, temperature sensors, chemical sensors, or a combination of sensors) but also rely on communication protocols and microcontroller management to interpret and transmit information to the user, to the cloud, or to a larger sensor network. We invite students across engineering to bring their interests and expertise together into interdisciplinary teams to address important design challenges in biomedical and environmental monitoring, wearable sensing, consumer electronics, and other applications. The course will cover both how sensors work (actual sensor topics covered in depth in class will be determined based on student interest) as well as how they communicate within existing communication protocols and smart sensor standards.
When: Spring Quarter 2019
Where: MEB 237
Time: Tues/Thurs, 12:30-2:20 p.m.
