A Viable Alternative for hardware? ARDUINO AND GENUINO MKR1000 NOW AVAILABLE IN OUR STORES

A project log for Fall Detector Wearable for Elderly and Clinics

Combining a 3-axis accelerometer with an Arduino to create a networked fall-detection device and alert system for individuals at risk.

While our initial idea was to use Tinyduino components, the recent announcement of the MKR1000 presents an interesting alternative. We'll now start looking into how easily we can integrate an accelerometer/thermometer component into the MKR1000 as an alternative. We will also need to assess the wifi range in order to make sure the connection is stable enough. It will be necessary to include an indicator to determine whether the device is connected properly to the network as this is paramount to alerting others.
