Developing a Mask to Aid Thoracic Surgeons in Assessing Patient Recovery

Participants:  Chai Yang, Brianna Myers, and Jaskaran Atwal
Summary:  Current methods of assessing patients’ cardiopulmonary recovery after lung re-sectioning are too involved in both the setup and time required to operate. Therefore these methods are unattractive for thoracic surgeons. This paper explores a solution that addresses this gap. OOCOO is a mobile mask system designed to measure oxygen and carbon dioxide levels in respiration, as well as activity levels. Oxygen, carbon dioxide and activity data is communicated from the mask to an Android Application. The data collected can then be used to more efficiently and effectively determine preoperative risk factors of lung resection patients.

Faculty Advisor:  Andre Knoesen and was performed in collaboration with Lisa M Brown and Soheil Ghiasi

 

Poultry Data Acquisition

Participants:  Ben Ryan, Ryan Maquiss, Yin Yi Chan
Summary: This senior design group created two primary systems to monitor a chicken coop’s ambient environment and the chicken’s movement in and out of the coop. Temperature, humidity, and light levels were recorded and stored on an SD card along with the time each chicken entered and exited the coop. This data is useful for keeping track of each chicken in order to notice patterns of when each chicken enters the coop. This can help the owners of the coop from losing the chickens. The temperature, humidity, and light sensors can allow the owners of the coop to monitor the conditions that the chickens are facing over a given period of time.

Faculty Advisor:  Andre Knoesen was performed in collaboration with Debbie Niemeier and relates to The UC Davis Pastured Poultry Farm

 

Sensor Network and UAV Data Collector

Participants:  Ivan Hebrio, Justin Yau, Kim-Thu Pham
Summary: In this project, we implement an innovative remote data gathering solution which uses unmanned aerial vehicles to connect to sensor nodes. This solution is intended to reduce power consumption of remote sensing units (thus increasing lifespan) and to add functionality to remote sensing systems.
