Looft, Fred J.

Abstract

The goal of this project was to create a companion device that could work in tandem with an Android tablet or phone to display information that would be of interest to an individual who was looking for an electronic companion, much like Wilson was a companion in the movie Castaway. The Wilson device uses various sensors to collect information about its acceleration, rotation, temperature, and altitude. Wilson then transmits this data via Bluetooth to an Android application that displays selected information for remote viewing.
