Traveling all the way to Princeton, New Jersey to participate in Hack Princeton Fall 2018, FIU students MJ Ramos and David Castaneda spent 36 hours hacking away to represent FIU at one of this seasons most prestigious hackathon !
Inspired from working with kids with autism, hoot is your night owl for when you can’t keep watch. Comprised of three separate services, hoot uses the Fitbit Ionic ( nonix ) to acquire real time data using open messaging queues. Running analytics on the different vitals from the Fitbit, hoot determines whether your experiencing any sleep discomfort like seizures, sleep apnea etc.. If a discomfort is triggered hoot reports it to Strix, the mobile platform, and notifies the caretaker through sms. Everything communicates through Athene which is the main driver in charge of data flow and running analytics of your triggers and the abnormalities around you at the point of most discomfort..
Hoot receives data from various sensors such as heart rate, atmospheric pressure and accelerometer readings. These data points are then continuously monitored by our mobile application in order to quickly catch any abnormalities. If hoot sees a combination of data points that it determines is likely to be a seizure, Sleep apnea or any other sleeping discomfort, hoot will notify the caretaker to administer the necessary medication.It was a great learning experience to present a project at an Ivy League hackathon. We definitely saw amazing projects from Princeton PhD students that motivated us to continue to push our limits on what our hackathon projects could be. We are super grateful to the HackPrinceton team for providing us this amazing opportunity.
