Embedded Computing Overview Embedded Computing Overview Presentation Transcript

  • Embedded Computing Overview Philip van Allen
  • An Ecology of Digital Systems Embedded Cloud Clockwise, in order of closeness to the person Wearables Server Dedicated PC Phone Tablet
  • Range of Embedded Systems ID Only RFID Linux + Arduino Arduino Tre Clockwise, in order of computing power Wireless Sensing Xbee Linux Computer Raspberry Pi/BeagleBone Programmable - Isolated Arduino Programmable - Networked Tessel
  • Sensors Proximity Switch Actuators Light Linear Touch Stepper Switch Servo Solenoid LEDs
  • Sensors - Analog to Digital Environmental temp humidity barometric pressure light (brightness, color) sound moisture chemical camera - object, facial recognition Biometric heart rate breathing blood pressure ID - fingerprint, iris steps, activity sleep brain activity chemical - nutrients, toxins, cancer, etc.
  • Sensors - Analog to Digital Interaction/Movement switch bat, tact, floor, infrared, magnetic, etc. proximity touch (1D, 2D, multi) pressure potentiometers rotary, linear, joystick accelerometer gyro flex/bend motion Heat/PIR, camera
  • Actuators - Digital to Analog Behavior/motion dc motor servo stepper memory wire (nitinol) solenoid Media video audio Environmental leds/lights el wire buzzer heating/cooling Switches digital out relay
  • Why Embedded Computing? Enables different kinds of design, escaping the screen Tangible Interaction, NUI, Physical Computing, Gestural Interaction, etc. Integrates the physical world with the digital Embeds interaction in people’s lives A less rational, more analog/emotional/intuitive translation of the computational
