Despite the pandemic, Spring 2021 has been a productive time for the undergraduate researchers in the Wearable Computing Lab.
Stephen Mitchell presents his work at IEEE SouthEast Conference
Stephen Mitchell has presented his latest work at IEEE SouthEast Conference. This short paper and presentation is an extension of his previous work that was presented at MARCUS 2019. Additionally analysis is on-going and has been accepted as publication for a full paper at SIEDS 2021.
Sophomore JMU Engineering student and undergraduate researcher in the Wearable Computing Group, Stephen Mitchell, presented his initial research on measuring athlete performance at the 2019 Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference on Undergraduate Scholarship (MARCUS) at Randolph College. His work examines using low-cost inertial measurement units (IMU) to calculate an athletic performance measure called the "Drop Jump Ratio". These IMUs are low-cost, light weight, and more mobile than traditional force plates used to calculate the drop jump ratio.
Sanarea Ali at CAPWIC 2019
JMU Engineering student, Sanarea Ali, gave a flash talk on her proposed wearable computing system for physical rehabilitation at the ACM Capital Region Celebration of Women in Computing (CAPWIC). Her research examines how wearable computing can support clinicians in understanding patient injuries and improving their recovery. The abstract of her talk is included here.
