Firstly, the student will be required to research on the particular requirements related to monitoring horse performance. The student will use TinyOS to activate the accelerometer to collect information and transmit to the USB dongle attached to the laptop.
The student will investigate performance of the communication technology and techniques to reduce transmission by sending only useful information e.g. throguh simple data processing that filters out data duplicates.
The java-base graphical interface should be developed via the OSGi framework available for Eclipse. The student will develop modules to visualize the 3-axis acceleration over time and derive information such as the stride rate, stride time, and variability.
The UI should:
• Allow saving the data .txt format, with labels on which section of data is from each sensor
• Start and stop recording
