Senior Design Team sdmay18-12 • Pilot Biometrics - ECG waveform captures
Pilot Biometrics is a project to develop a device that will capture, monitor, and analyze the ECG waveform of a military pilot in flight, to be used during training operations. The device will use four high-fidelity ECG sensors to collect an accurate waveform, then filter out background noise and interference. Finally, the device will analyze the waveform data to detect if the pilot is in distress, while also storing an encrypted copy of the data and packaging a copy for real-time transmission to the ground through a component in the cockpit. The device will operate on its own power supply and will be capable to running continuously for 4-5 hours.
