Environmental data analysis and ML-enchancement rendered via a CNN speech-reactive custom watch

Smartwatches are merely an extension of the smartphone, and once the novelty factor wears off, the interest in usage drops tremendously. The literature presents an alternative of a smartwatch that is fully offline with features based on surveys.

Hello everyone, my name is Ciprian, and I am a Robotics Enginerring graduate, with a background in Electronics and CAD modelling, and an interest in the technology developed in the Robotics and Space Industry. This project looks into what a Smartwatch could do and presents an alternative to what is currently available on the market. At the bottom of this post, the Technical Report can be found attached.

Smartwatches have been on the market since 1998 - “the Ruputer” - and since IBM launched the first commercial smartwatch in 2000, this technology has become a promising trend, with the market predicted to increase to 200 million by 2019, further proving the interest available in this, mostly, untouched market.

The main idea of a smartwatch is to complement a smartphone and emphasize its features while improving the ease of use. The issue is that everything that can be done on a smartwatch, can be done directly on a smartphone, with the sole exception of the health monitoring thanks to its proprietary sensors. These features create new possibilities for smartwatches to be used in many industries, especially in remote applications, and as an outcome, the topic of smartwatches is a major discussion in both the industry and academia.

The full development logbook can be found on the following Blog Website: AURI Smartwatch Blog
