Prof. Joshua Peschel
Meeting notes and issues
- Instrumentations for tracking movement of children in school
- Some students of Prof. Peschel can support to make the kits.
- But Arduino is not recommended to use in the project because it is likely to be broken easily by students.
- Also, it is as expensive as smart GPS watches, a bit heavy and has big size.
- Lilypad or FLORA
- Lilypad or FLORA can be stitched on to a wrist band, cloth or fabric.
- It is cheap, small, light and easy to carry.
- An accelerometer sensor and GPS receiver are separated.
- It needs an additional battery.
- Someone may need to collect data every day in school.
- RFID system
- Once RFID transmitters are installed around green infrastructure, the movement of students who have RFID tags can be tracked.
- RFID tags are really cheap, small and easy to carry.
- The accuracy of locations is dependent on how many RFID transmitters are installed.
- The price of RFID transmitters will probably be expensive.
- Additional accelerometer sensors will be needed.
