Activities Tracking System

The elderly population is experiencing high growth in most of the countries. Today, 8.5% of the total population worldwide is aged 65 and above. Most of the elderly preferred to stay at home most of the time. Due to a limited movement within the household, many of them engaged in only a few physical activities. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) tracking physical activity of a person confined to home can attribute to a reduction of high blood pressure and weight as well as reduce risks of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and various types of cancer. In view of this, one of the research centre (Digital Home and lifestyle centre) in the Faculty of Engineering, MMU has initiated a project to develop a wearable tracking device to track physical activities and indoor position.

Automatic Hand Sanitizer Dispenser

As I am writing this, the location that I am residing in is under partial lock down due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Thus I have been confined to home like most folks everywhere throughout the world right now. Apart from some work via remote working, I have been working on small projects to keep myself occupied. I saw many posts on automatic hand sanitizer dispenser being shared online past few weeks. The idea is have a system that can detect a person hand as he/she place it at the nozzle of the hand sanitizer container, and discharge the content automatically, thus avoiding hand contact with the hand sanitizer level to minimize the transfer of the virus or other pathogens to our hand.

V2T2A: Experimental Mini Two-Wheels Robot with Humanoid Torso

We designed and build this mini agile robot as part of our efforts in robotics and artificial intelligence research. It is kept small to reduce the cost and built time. Besides, there is less safety issue with small machine.

V2P2 Seeks Color Ball Demo

This video shows the preliminary result of the V2P2 (also called the EB2) two-wheels self-balancing robot (https://youtu.be/93tGFhFK1r4) with head unit, navigating and searching for a color object at the same time. The head unit contains a camera with image processor, and another micro-controller which regulates high level behavior and goals. Please see: http://digital.mmu.edu.my/intelligent… for more details.

Introducing EB2 Beta Two-Wheels Mobile Robotic Platform

This can be considered a toy, but actually is a small two-wheels robotic platform. To keep the cost down we start with a small version. This version weights 0.24 kg, and larger versions (1.0 kg and perhaps 3.0 kg) are in the pipeline. By platform it means this is not a complete product, but you need to add some extra ‘stuffs’ to make it complete. It is a platform where others can build on top of it. This is a two-wheel self-balancing base, it can support a few small RC servo motors, has a Bluetooth wireless interface, and contains a physical port that can communicate and supply power (5V, 0.20A) to external circuitry or processors. When connected to external processors, this robot platform acts as a slave, listening and responding to the commands from the external processor. Your external processor/controller thus acts as the ‘brain’ of the robot, which you can execute your own AI routines.
