Abstract

The recent sensing capabilities of mobile devices along with their interactivity and popularity in the student community can be used to create a unique learning environment in engineering education. Android Java-DSP (AJDSP) is a mobile educational application that interfaces with sensors and enables simulation and visualization of signal processing concepts. In this paper, we present the work done towards building non-invasive physiological signal monitoring tools in AJDSP through hardware interfaces to both external sensors and on-board device sensors. Examples of laboratory exercises that can be introduced in classes are presented. The proposed software tools can be used to provide intuitive understanding in wireless sensing and feature extraction to demonstrate the application of DSP to health monitoring systems. The effectiveness of the software modules in enhancing student understanding is demonstrated with the help of preliminary assessments.
