Henk spotted the following link this week as a possible basis for our Pizza Sniffer
GPSS Moving Map Talking Software by
Jim is hopeful that Marianne Hickey from HP will be able to provide some support for a
student working on speech issues for our wearables. After discussion Student Summer Work
is now looking as follows:
- Customize 3rd party map software (eg Moving Map SW) for our purposes. What should the
exact focus of the app be? Pizza restaraunts, shopping trip in Bristol or tourist sites.
- Develop proprietary differential GPS solution. Is this cost effective compared
to buying in a solution?
- Develop wireless earpiece. Can we find a student with analogue electronics skills?
- Speech interaction. Add a speech input front end and extend to allow computer or user
This splits neatly between four students. Additional optional work includes:
- Solar power investigation. Monitoring how much power comes from shoulder pad sized solar
- Helping with wireless display work. This would mean basing a student at labs.
- David and Henk to continue with Summer Student recruitment.
- Henk to see Tony Coping for Summer Students with analogue skills.
- Henk to investigate the cost of off-the-shelf differential GPS systems.
- Jim to invite Marianne to the next wearable meeting.
And carried over from last time:
- Phil to write up one-pager for wireless earpiece student project.
- Henk to Email Jim and PhilN copy of "channels" paper.
- Jim to continue contact with Philip's and to clear things with JT.
- Phil to check for a single card GSM phone solution. At the same time to look into this 8
second latecny problem with the Orange phones.
