BME698:012 Fundamentals of Embedded Systems HW1: Project Overview and Functional Description 1) List of team members 2) Name/Title of your project. Choose something short and descriptive – remember, this project is ideally something great to put on a resume. Approach your proposal with this in mind. 3) Functional Description of the Project. This is a one-paragraph, very well written description of WHAT the project is going to do. This is your “advertisement”...product features. Who would buy this and why. Recall product searches you do online...this is the opening paragraph that you see next to the product picture. Do not jump directly into the gory details on HOW it will be done. This comes later. Check out the website link as an example of information to include. 3) Block diagram of the proposed system. As discussed in class, this generally has at least 3 blocks: inputs, processing, outputs. Inputs: List all of the proposed inputs. These are generally a) hardware sensors and b) any associated hardware that may be located ON or OFF the Experimenter’s Board. Do not forget secondary inputs like buttons where the user controls something, like start and stop of a timer, of data collection, etc. What is being measured? (e.g., ECG, temperature, light, etc.) How is it being measured? (e.g., bend sensor, ECG simulator, microphone, etc.) Outputs: List of all proposed outputs (include the units). These are generally hardware that engages a human (display, LED, buzzer, etc.) or a separate machine (voltage signal, etc.). Please design for humans. What signal is being conveyed to the outside world? (e.g., Heart rate in BPM, bend angle in degrees, etc.) What method is being used to convey this information to the outside world? (e.g., LCD display, buzzer, speaker, LED, etc.) Processing: Identify what processing will occur. This may include several steps. Identify the steps – you will be further breaking them down in the next homework in the form of another flow chart. 4) Parts List. Identify any parts needed for this project at are not part of the Experimenter’s board. Propose where you can acquire these parts. I don’t expect part numbers yet, only that you have a list of stuff you will need.
