Synthetic sensor

In this project the students will build a system that uses multiple types of sensors attached to a fixed position to gather data. By using machine learning the system is able to detect different events occurring within the same room (like door closing, person arriving/leaving, ...). The goal is to create a general purpose sensor with the help of machine learning, which could replace a number of simpler sensors to detect events. The project was proposed by Accenture Finland, Liquid Studio.

Project start: 2019-08-16
Duration: 4 months
Phase 1 Phase 2 Phase 3

Project Team

The main student team consists of 10 last semester bachelor level ICT students at Haaga-Helia. They have studied mainly web- and mobile-programming. The team is mentored by a teacher and an outside company representative.
