Sensors enable us to stay safe, stay informed, and even stay healthy. Currently, the economy is investing in wearable sensors that can monitor one’s health and provide that data to the individual and to doctors. Rescue workers are also taking notice so they can protect themselves and personnel when conducting search and rescue operations.
In this project, students will explore the world of sensors by designing a wearable device for Search and Rescue personnel that utilizes the use of one or a combination of sensors to monitor a safety factor related to the health of the rescue worker. Students will learn and practice wiring circuits and programming microcontrollers.
