If the students come with their own laptop, they might be asked to install some software. Further details will be given during the first lecture.


Key references will be made available for students depending on the copyright.
Open-access on-line material is extensively used.

‚»‚Μ‘Ό=No test. The evaluation is mainly based on student behavior during the lectures and the completion during the class of small problems related to the practical works. The understanding of the class content can also be evaluated during the final oral presentation. Students must attend to 80% of the class to pretend to have an A. Only students who attend the final oral presentation will be able to obtain an A.

This course mostly focuses on novel ICT solutions able to positively impact our habits towards healthier lifestyles. The inclusion of accelerometer sensors in technologies that we used every day (smartphones, video games...) allows to monitor the volume of daily physical activity, encouraging active lifestyles and a better management of energy balance. In the future, new ICT will play a crucial role for the prevention of metabolic disorders and the increase of healthy life expectancy. The objective of this course is to make students more familiar with the accelerometer-based mobile health technologies.

SubtitleF Accelerometer-based technologies and health promotion

Essential Engineering & Technology for Global Leaders I is an 8-lecture course. Most of the class content consists in practical exercises. You will use an Arduino board to build an activity tracker. First, you will be introduced to the Arduino environment and write some simple programs. Second, you will build the hardware of your activity tracker. Third, you will design a suitable software to process acceleration data and turn them into intelligible physical activity outcomes. The last class consists of a brief oral presentation of your work during the semester. Ideally students will work in groups of 2 people. Lectures are conducted in gsimpleh English.

1. Arduino Workshop (3h)
2. Physical activity monitor - hardware: 3-axis accelerometer (3h)
3. Physical activity monitor - hardware: real time clock (3h)
4. Physical activity monitor - hardware: memory (3h)
5. Making a case using a 3D printer (3h)
6. Physical activity monitor - software: acceleration data processing (3h)
7. Physical activity monitor – software: step-count algorithm (3h)
8. Final presentation (1h30)

The above plan is subject to changes depending on the progress of students.

1. Guidance and introduction to some important health promotion concepts (Q&A + lecture).
2. Physical activity assessment ad lifestyle monitoring (lecture)
3. Accelerometre-based technologies (video games, smartphones...) for health promotion (lecture).
4. Using a physical activity monitor (or "lifelog") - I (readings and Q&A)
5. Using a physical activity monitor (or "lifelog") - II (practical work)
6. Introduction to Arduino (practical work)
7. 3-axis accelerometer with Arduino (practical work)
8. Building a physical activity monitor: 3-axis accelerometer and memory (practical work)
9. Building a physical activity monitor: real time clock (practical work)
10. Building a physical activity monitor: making it work (practical work)
11. Building a physical activity monitor: making a case with 3D printer (practical work)
12. Building a physical activity monitor: calibration and step count algorithm-I (practical work)
13. Building a physical activity monitor: calibration and step count algorithm-II (practical work)
14. Buffer
15. Buffer

The whole work is expected to be completed during the lecture time. There is no compulsory homework, but students are encouraged to keep the hardware with them during the week to practice further or to complete any unfinished practical exercise.

Please, join and experience an 'active' science class.
The class will start straight with practical exercise. No introduction class will be conducted. The students who are not sure whether they want to take the class are encouraged to ask questions in advance. Inquiries can be addressed at Julien Tripette.
