Location alarm – electronic assistive technology for the elderly

Location alarm – electronic assistive technology for the elderly

Working closely with our SME client, A2E designed a proof-of-concept audio capture and processing front-end to their existing product.

The prototype system is intended to allow representative acoustic signal collection and system evaluation at minimum cost.  It consists of a high sensitivity analogue front end coupled to a microcontroller evaluation kit which streams data to a PC to allow the client to experiment with controlling the timings and gains used for signal sampling, in order to characterise acoustic performance for incorporation into a future product.
