Abstract

Physiological data has had a transforming role on multiple aspects of society, which goes beyond the health sciences domains to which they were traditionally associated with. While biomedical engineering is a classical discipline where the topic is amply covered, today physiological data is a matter of interest for students, researchers and hobbyists in areas ranging from arts, programming, engineering, among others. Regardless of the context, the use physiological in experimental activities and practical projects is heavily bounded by the cost and limited access to adequate support materials.

In this talk we will focus on BITalino, a versatile toolkit composed of low-cost hardware and software, and created to enable anyone to create cool projects and applications involving physiological data. The hardware consists of a modular wireless biosignal acquisition system that can be used to acquire data in real time, interface with other devices (e.g. Arduino or Raspberry PI), or perform rapid prototyping of end-user applications. The software comprehends a set of programming APIs, a biosignal processing toolbox, and a framework for real time data acquisition and postprocessing.

Sounds interesting! It wold be nice to have availiable the same hardware that will be used in the presentation during codebits, so ppl can "dream -> think -> develop -> test" and hope any of those dreams can be usefull for someone else!

PLUX will be giving a 25% off discount on BITalino kits as a SAPO Codebits 2014 special… you may want to consider pre-ordering your's given that these things continue to fly out of the door and may stock out again anytime soon.
