Description

The Delta Band is a strength training wearable tailored to athletes and trainers. Using machine learning, the Delta Band automatically recognizes and tracks a variety of strength exercises, provides valuable fitness metrics to trainers, and allows coaches to deliver customized workouts to the wrist of every athlete.

Project Updates

9/18/18 - Project Update: Deltaband

The DeltaBand project is going strong with electrical rev 0.3 having been assembled and placed in a first-pass prototype 3d-printed enclosure. They were showcased at a CMU new building tour with overwhelmingly positive results. The algorithms have been shown to have accuracies exceeding 99.5% when running on a computer. For the next 2 weeks or so, we will be focusing on the following: 1) refining the enclosure design 2) experimenting with resin based plastic casting, aluminum machining techniques, and higher quality 3d printers for more professional prototype enclosures 3) making a robust bluetooth pipeline to stream data from the DeltaBand to a computer to be processed live (as opposed to over a wired connection or through a non-live data logging technique) for use in an October 3rd demo at a tech showcase. Over the next 2.5 months, we aim to: 1) have a refined enclosure that can be manufactured at a volume of ~50-100 2) have implemented the ML algorithms to run on our ARM cortex M-4 processor 3) develop a basic web based mobile app for transferring data off the watch and to the cloud (we have a webdev guy who will be joining our team soon) 3) ship units for a closed-beta test to select athletic trainers by the end of November
