Sensors and Smartphones: Tracking Water Collection in Rural Ethiopia
Found in: IEEE Pervasive Computing
By Rohit Chaudhri,Rita Sodt,Kristian Lieberg,John Chilton,Gaetano Borriello,Yuta Jason Masuda,Joseph Cook
Issue Date:July 2012
pp. 15-24
In rural areas, residents often venture far distances to collect water for everyday use. A low-power wireless system records motion and leverages Bluetooth-enabled smartphones, retrieving data from sensors attached to household water containers, to help re...
Open data kit sensors: a sensor integration framework for android at the application-level
Found in: Proceedings of the 10th international conference on Mobile systems, applications, and services (MobiSys '12)
By Gaetano Borriello, Jaylen Van Orden, Mayank Goel, Michael Falcone, Rita Sodt, Rohit Chaudhri, Waylon Brunette
Issue Date:June 2012
pp. 351-364
Smartphones can now connect to a variety of external sensors over wired and wireless channels. However, ensuring proper device interaction can be burdensome, especially when a single application needs to integrate with a number of sensors using different c...
A system for safe flash-heat pasteurization of human breast milk
Found in: Proceedings of the 5th ACM workshop on Networked systems for developing regions (NSDR '11)
By Beth Kolko, Darivanh Vlachos, Gaetano Borriello, Jabili Kaza, Joy Palludan, Kiersten Israel-Ballard, Nathan Bilbao, Rohit Chaudhri, Troy Martin
Issue Date:June 2011
pp. 9-14
We present ongoing development of a low-cost system to improve the flash-heat pasteurization process for human breast milk currently utilized in resource-constrained developing regions. Flash-heat was designed for low-resource environments, is simple to us...
FoneAstra: making mobile phones smarter
Found in: Proceedings of the 4th ACM Workshop on Networked Systems for Developing Regions (NSDR '10)
By Gaetano Borriello, Rohit Chaudhri, William Thies
Issue Date:June 2010
pp. 1-5
FoneAstra is a low-cost, programmable device that extends capabilities of mobile phones. We show how our device extends the functionality of non-programmable, low-tier mobile phones that are most prevalent amongst people from low-income groups in developin...
