The story behind U-Wake

A little bit of background

Let’s talk about brainwaves

 How to apply EEG into our daily lives and make it more user friendly...

Current EEG devices are not very user friendly as they are often used in hospital settings and don't need to be portable at all. Therefore, to ensure our device is portable and easy to use, we've decided to find that particular region of the brain that is in charge of fatigue. In the clip below you are going to see how we carry out our research to find the area of the brain in charge of detecting fatigue...

After conducting hundreds of tests and cross referencing the results from EEG by using Eye detection device, we found that the area in charge of detecting fatigue in the brain is located in the forehead. 

   Introducing U-Wake, a wearable fatigue detection device

U-Wake App

The Bluetooth device embeded onto the box helps to transfer the raw data collected by the sensors and the U-Wake app then work with the raw data to monitor fatigue level of the user.

  How to put U-Wake on?

Risks and challenges

Every idea and creation must meet their obstacles. But we aren’t afraid to conquer difficulties. On the contrary, we like to take the responsibility to build a safer place for our family and friends.
Since the beginning of this project, we’ve met some obstacles with finding the perfect algorithm for the app so that the device can run smoothly and alert users at the right moment. Through trials after trials, we’ve managed to find an algorithm that works. However, human beings aren’t machines and there will always be exceptions. We’d welcome all to send us their data and we will customize an algorithm to better suit your needs.
