Projects

Group project based on sampling and study of an ECG signal via a single amplification circuit and software filtering and analysis systems. This required good communication between team members to ensure all work was accomplished within the specification. My role was to design and implement the software filtering system using LabView.

Final year project involved development and construction of a Controller Area Network (CAN) based system suitable for demonstrating the fundamentals of CANBus from an automotive perspective. I achieved a 2:1 grade

Electronics prize for a project to build a Digital Heart Rate meter in 2nd year.
