Comparison of Short Range Wireless Technology for Applications in Monitoring Muscular Exertion Rate of Bikers
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Muscular exertion rate of the bike riders is an indicator of their fatigue. Monitoring this phenomena and letting it know to the bikers or other concerned, bike designers will help in modifying the design of bike that causes low muscular exertion of the biker and hence low fatigue. To send such data to a remote monitoring state where they can be analyzed. This can be done with the help of a network of short range wireless sensor nodes with suitable transmission technology. This thesis focused mainly on the comparative study of ZigBee, ANT and BLE(Bluetooth Low Energy). The Idea is to collect the muscular exertion data with relevant sensor, send it to the mobile and then using an appropriate short range wireless transmission technique send it to the concerned remote monitoring centre. The criterion to find the solution is based on transmission rate and powerconsumption by that technology.The comparative study show that the BLE is the most suitable technology contemporarily available on which we can build our solution for bike rider’s fatigue monitoring problem. This is verified by the results from experiments with BLE development kits from CSR, Texas Instruments and Nordic Semiconductors.
