Date

July 10, 2014

Speaker

Arjmand Samuel, Buz Chmielewski, and Nilanjan Banerjee

Overview

Learn how Nilanjan Banerjee from the University of Maryland, Baltimore
County, uses the Lab of Things as the platform to interconnect wearable sensors
like gloves, headbands, and capacitive sensors built into clothing, bedsheets,
and wheelchair pads. These sensors capture/monitor subtle motions such as
finger twitching, lower arm rotation, and head movements among paralysis
patients, with the ultimate goal of providing these individuals the ability to
control appliances in caregiving and home settings.
