IEEE ComSoc/SP and EMBS/Computer Joint Chapters – Austin, Student Projects Presentations, “Smart Cities Patient Fall Detection” and “Smart City Concept Garage System”

April 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

IEEE CTS Austin ComSoc & Signal Processing Joint Chapter and EMBS & Computer Joint chapter 

are pleased to inviting you to attend the following Student Presentations for their projects:

Project i) Smart Cities Patient Fall Detection


Sponsor: IEEE Central Texas

Student Team: Christopher Grassel, Marco Castro, Samuel Mckinney, Jack R Sargeant

Faculty Advisor: Dr. Semih Aslan

The project will utilize a web-based application to manage a network of digital and analog devices, which will create a smart environment to increase patient safety. The system will monitor patients and display a video feed and data from pressure sensors to a monitor at the nurses’ station.


Project ii) Smart City Concept Garage System

Sponsor: IEEE Central Texas

Student Team: Rhylie Hoyt, Case Winter, Muhammad Ahmed, Wesley Nicol

Faculty Advisor: Dr. Damien Valles

A smart city concept garage system is a system installed in a standard garage that allows for multiple control options for the garage door, access to sensory data, web browsing monitoring access, and pipeline of data warehousing. The garage system will react to sensor readings that indicate danger, such as opening the garage door for ventilation if the carbon monoxide concentration is high. The system will be integrated with other systems that together make up a smart home.
