Abstract [en]

This report describes the development process of the mobile application HealthyWay. The application is developed as a Bachelor thesis project together with KTH Royal Institute of Technology. The applications' main function is to be the interface to a number of wearable medical electronic appliances such as bandages and pill boxes. The communication is done through Bluetooth Low Energy. The application was mainly written in 3 di erent languages, QML, C++ and Java. The most stressed point throughout this project was the importance of platform independence. The exibility had to be done on a scalable as well as on a modular level. With this in mind, QT was used to address the requirement of scalability.

The modularity was achieved through an organized structure to the program accompanied by easy directives to introduce new devices. The purpose of the application is to increase the quality of life for the user. This intent could however not be concluded due to the lack of testing among users. In its current state, the application is not yet ready for deployment but instead acts as a framework for future prospects.

Abstract [sv]

Den här rapporten beskriver utvecklingsprocessen för en mobilapplikation vid namn Healthy- Way. Applikationen är utvecklad som ett kandidatexamensarbete tillsammans med KTH. Applikationens huvudsakliga uppgift är att vara ett gränssnitt till medicinskt relaterad utrustning såsom plaster och pilleraskar. Kommunikationen mellan dessa sker via Bluetooth Low Energy. Applikationen skrevs huvudsakligen i 3 olika språk, QML, C++ och Java. Den viktigaste punkten genom projektets gång var att applikationen skulle vara oberoende av plattform. Flexibiliteten var tvungen att göras på både en skalbar och modulär nivå. Med detta i åtanke valdes QT för att behandla skalbarheten.

Modulariteten uppnåddes genom en välplanerad struktur på programmet tillsammans med instruktioner på hur ny utrustning kan introduceras. Syftet med programmet är att öka livskvaliteten för användaren. Detta syfte kunde däremot inte slutföras på grund av bristande testning hos användare. I dagens läge är applikationen inte redo för att släppas kommersiellt, men tjänar som ett bra ramverk för framtida utveckling.
