Project Summary

Existing sensor platforms are either too expensive for cost-efficient lab deployment or too resource constrained for hosting complicate signal and image processing algorithms. This project is to build a mobile sensor platform with both 1-D (e.g., acoustic) and 2-D sensing (e.g., imaging) capabilities, powerful on-board processing, mobility, and most importantly, with a cost of less than $500 (exclusive of labor cost). This project started in Spring 2004 as a class project. The initial design gets refined and improved in later semesters. Currently, each student entering AICIP is required to build a platform from scratch.
