|Infants that are born premature at
less than 35 weeks are at a greater risk of health complications, and the
most common problem is sleep apnea. When an apnea event occurs, the sleeping
infant stops breathing for a period lasting from 20 seconds to a minute,
cutting off oxygen to the brain. Quick intervention is key.
The CaRe Monitor is a low-cost, wearable and washable neonatal apnea monitor
that targets developing markets. The monitor will have a Bluetooth option
that allows for the sharing of apnea data between doctors and hospitals in
different regions and countries.

|The quality of
oral health in Honduras is very poor, relative to neighboring countries.
However, before implementing public water fluoridation in Honduras, a method
to monitor fluoride levels must be developed.
The Water Fluoride Monitor will remotely monitor and then send data using an
Arduino GSM shield and a cellular network.

|The need to
refill our vehicles at a gas station is very familiar to us, but we don’t
recognize the time and economic cost of this necessity. According to a
preliminary market survey, about 65 percent of the respondents are willing
to pay a service fee for the convenience of having a vehicle refilled at a
specific (non-gas-station) location.
This project looked into developing a full kit, including app and accessory
device, for a door-to-door fueling service that uses a secure remote gas
door unlocking function.
