iRobot is a programmable small robot that we used to simulate a vehicle. It has various sensors to provide feedback about speed, directions and environmental obstacles.
USRP is the commonly used software defined radio for deploying new wireless communication protocols. Our B210 kit contains the motherboard (for protocol and control), daugther boards (for signal process) and dual antennas.
Several laptops are used as on-vehicle control units. In addition, Windows Surface tablets are adopted, which are products from Microsoft with the classic Windows operating system and an attachable keyboard.
VSmart is a DSRC-enabled smart vehicle testbed established at CPS-Lab, McGill University, and is partially supported by General Motors Company.
A number of Leap Motion sensors are used in undergrad/grad students research projects, including in-vehicle gesture control, fast handwriting recognition, gesture dial pad design, etc.
Kinect for Windows v2 brings the latest Microsoft technologies (e.g. new IR capabilities, 3D visualization, expanded field of view, etc.), enabling depth sensing, 1080p color image capturing and numbers of applications that allow people to interact naturally with computers.
The system uses Leap Motion sensor and Kinect V2 to track user hand gestures and body (head and arms) pose directions.The Leap Motion sensor is connected to the laptop via USB 3.0, reporting hand micro movements. The Kinect camrea tracks human body and head position and report the direction of the user face to the system on real time.
In-Vehicle sensing system uses one Leap Motion sensor and one Kinect camera to track driver hand motion and eye distraction problem. The Leap Motion sensor is able to detect micro movement of dirver's hand in a small area, which enables in-vehicle gesture recognition. The Kinect camera is used to detect driver eye gaze directions and analyze the driver distraction problem.
In both the commercial market and the research community, Android devices are the most widely accepted mobile devices. Its open-source nature makes easy the development of various customized applications and testbeds upon different resesarch demands. Its abundant models also give us the convenience of accessing to all kinds of mobile hardware as well as powerful embedded sensors. Our devices cover all the nexus phones originally designed by Google.
This test suite automatically simulates the real-world use cases of the mobile devices and provides comprehensive stress tests. It can be used to significantly improve the application test efficiency and robustness.
Modern mobile devices feature with versatile sensors, including accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, etc., which can be used to detect the human locomotion. Combining it with an indoor map, LocME seeks to locate the user employing soly the inertial sensor data, providing new possiblity for indoor localization.
The Quanser Universal Power Module UPM-180-25B is a power amplifier designed to drive high-powered systems. The amplifier consists of an on-board current-controlled pulse-width modulated analog output, an independent DC power supply for powering sensors, an analog input interface and embedded safety circuitry.
The Quanser Q4/Q8 Extended Terminal Card is a robust single-board PCI- based solution developed for multifaceted control systems and complex measurement applications. With its wide range of inputs and outputs, we can easily connect and control a variety of devices instrumented with analog and digital sensors,
