Speaker  Arjmand Samuel, Buz Chmielewski, and Nilanjan Banerjee

Duration  00:01:58

Date recorded  10 July 2014

Learn how Nilanjan Banerjee from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, uses the Lab of Things as the platform to interconnect wearable sensors like gloves, headbands, and capacitive sensors built into clothing, bedsheets, and wheelchair pads. These sensors capture/monitor subtle motions such as finger twitching, lower arm rotation, and head movements among paralysis patients, with the ultimate goal of providing these individuals the ability to control appliances in caregiving and home settings.
