|Project Summary||Project Information|
Headphones are a constant in any consumer's life. What if it could do more than play music and monitor their surroundings?
Bose Corporation is largely known for being a leader in entertainment consumer electronics; however, the company has recently begun exploration into the area of biometric sensing. As such, the underlying objective of this project is to further investigate the potential for Bose to expand their current headphones platform to include various sensors and create an array of customer experiences.
Specifically, the project team would work to integrate both environmental sensors, such as temperature, humidity and sunlight intensity, and biometric sensors, such as hydration and UV absorption, into a pair of Bose headphones. By combining these sensors into a single product, a user would be able to determine the effects of their external environment on their internal physiology.
At minimum, by the end of the 2018 Spring semester the project team will have successfully integrated wearable, accurate sensors into a pair of headphones. However, if time permits, an app will also be developed in order to create a more immersive customer experience. Finally, it should be noted that the project team will solely be responsible for sensor integration into headphones. Audio integration will not be necessary, but should be considered when determining power draw, size of sensors/processors, etc.
