Wireless Diving Board Displacement Sensor

Team 4 DiveIT members Fernando Trindade, Eric Blanchard, Jeffrey Borrelli, and Chris Maloof.

DiveIT developed a system that provides divers with performance feedback by plotting the displacement of a diving board. Their customer, Professor Bennett Goldberg, required the system to be wireless, easy to install without affecting board dynamics, and able to display information on a laptop. The team waterproofed a Wireless Inertial Sensor (WIS), which can be attached to a diving board with a velcro strap. The user interface provides a displacement versus time graph, which can be saved to compare it with future dives.
