I'm really struggling in class and this study guide was freaking crucial. Really needed help, and Adam delivered. Shoutout Adam, I won't forget!

Project Guidelines The primary objective of the assigned project is to provide students with practical experience in deconstructing the use of modern technology for monitoring human health. Wide spread use of cell phones and software apps is having a profound effect on our lives. Apps with and without use of external sensors are changing how we monitor health. Now, an average person with a cell phone can monitor their health with easy and at minimal cost that was not possible in the past. The assigned project involves deconstructing an assigned health monitoring app. Learning Objectives Introduction to cell phone based technology to monitor human health Development of engineering skills in use and implementation of technology Experimental data collection Learn to analyze and interpret data The project is divided into three phases. Guidelines for each phase are outlined below. Phase 1 Aim: To figure out how the heath app works- principle of operation Identify the components (camera, light, audio port, etc) of the cell phone that are used to make the app work. How do these components interact with the human body? Find out what is detected by the components How are the signal detected by the components used to correlate to a physiological function? Suggested time period to finish phase one: 2 weeks Deliverables: Perform an experiment to demonstrate the principle of operation. Record a video of the experiment and submit it with final project report. 2) A short description of the principle of operation which diagram identifying cell phone components involved and the flow of information between them. Phase 2 Aim: Data collection using the health monitoring app Each member of the project group will collect data by daily using the app. For example, if you have the pedometer for evaluation, turn on the app in the morning and record data until you retire for the day. Collate all the recorded data and transfer it to a spread sheet file for analysis later. Suggested time period to finish phase: 4 weeks Deliverables: Recorded data spread sheet file. Plots of measured health parameter as a function of time for each individual and as a group Phase 3 Aim: Analysis and interpretation of data Simple statistical analysis to quantitatively evaluate the performance of the app. One lecture will be devoted to introduce simple statistical analysis methods. Suggested time period to finish phase three: 2-3 weeks after completion of data collection. Deliverables: Results of the statistical analysis and verdict on the performance of the assigned app. Final report will include the deliverables from all phases of the project.
