Various paid engineering projects

We have a number of occasional paid tasks associated with research. This is a good opportunity to develop design skills. The availability and selection of tasks varies from time time to time. Examples include: - software design: microcontroller programming, Bluetooth stack design, Java/Javascript - electronic design: sensor design, FPGA programming - 3D design: enclosure design and prototyping - manufacturing tasks, assembly - assistance with conducting human experiments and annotation of data...

Self-regulation of walking Cadence using a WeArable device To Cross-validate and calibrate intensity Heuristics: The Cadence-WATCH study

Background: U.S. physical activity guidelines recommend that adults accumulate ≥ 150 minutes per week of moderate-to-vigorous intensity activity. However, it is difficult for individuals to ascertain their own intensity without the aid of complex (and often very expensive) exercise equipment/technologies that require requisite knowledge for interpretation of intensity metrics commonly examined under laboratory research conditions. Purpose: The proposed grant study will evaluate the ability of adults (18-80 years of age) to self-regulate their walking cadence (i.e., number of steps per minute) using a fitness watch to prescribed cadence targets in order to elicit a moderate-to-vigorous walking intensity. Method: A sex- and age balance samp...
