Research Projects

Android Smartphone based Coordinator for Wireless Body Area Networks (ongoing), 2014

  • Working on Arduino microcontroller controlled sensing, acquisition and transmission of physiological parameters
  • Aiming at cognitive utilization of voice and data networks around the smartphone for transmission of sensed parameters

Lifetime enhancement of Wireless Body Area Networks, 2013

  • Developed algorithms for packet shortening in order to save energy and enhance the lifetime of WBANs
  • Evaluated energy savings for critical, real-life, real-time physiological data in the suggested WBAN framework

Wireless Sensor Network Testbed, 2011

  • Designed, implemented and tested a testbed involving Tmote sensors for studying link parameters over multiple transmission channels and various power levels
  • Studied packet transmission, link quality and received signal strength parameters and analyzed the results received
  • Used for various other studies by senior members in the research group

Wireless Sensor Network based intrusion and proximity detection, 2010

  • Designed, fabricated and tested interface and conditioning circuits for external Sharp GP2Y0A21YK IR transducers for Tmote and TelosB sensors for use in intrusion and proximity detection
  • Developed the Java code for intrusion monitoring and alarm generation on a windows computer based on the signals received from the wireless sensor network

Wireless Sensor Network based control of Music, 2009

  • Working on five different projects involving dancers, clarinetists and pianists with College of Music, UC
  • Designed, fabricated and tested interface and conditioning circuits for external pressure, IR, optical and 3-axis accelerometer transducers for Tmote and TelosB sensors for use in sensor localization and music control
  • Coded the NesC modules for data acquisition, caching and transmission for the TelosB/Tmotes
  • The wireless sensor network would sense and relay the control command for playing the music to a base station Mac computer
