Microcontrollers from Texas Instruments (TI) provide a solution for a wide range of low power and portable applications. In this project we will program embedded software for a TI wireless chronos watch [1] combined with its RF access point receiver. The watch has embedded sensors that can be used to acquire data, including an on-board 3-axis accelerometer, pressure sensor, temperature sensor and a battery voltage sensor. The application proposed to be implemented is a portable trainer featuring the possibility for training configuration (e.g. weight, time, speed. distance). Necessary subtasks are (i) logging actual measured training data on the watch, (ii) lossless transmission of logged data to a workstation, and (iii) graphical visualization and data analysis.
