Project

Head movement detection system using Rabbit microprocessor

Project (M.S., Electrical and Electronic Engineering) -- California State University, Sacramento, 2011.

This project presents head monitoring movement system. It has potential application for monitoring patients head after surgery and operations. Sometimes it is very important to monitor patient’s head position after surgery not to have movement of more than certain angle. Head movement detection system helps by placing very small accelerometer on head which serves as a motion detector and storing the head movement angles generated continuously to web database. This helps to retrieve old values at any time. The system in this project uses wearable tilt accelerometer. The accelerometer provides tilt movement. Tilt angle calculation, communication interface, and processing are done by microprocessor. Rabbit microprocessor is a very powerful embedded tool which is used as an interface between accelerometer and the developed database. Communication between Rabbit microprocessor and database is done by using Ethernet. The developed computer software automatically plots graph that helps analyze the changes in head position.
