When astronauts travels to Mars, or even other planets, they will be exposed to a number of hazards e.g. radiation, microbes in the spacecraft, planetary surface toxic dust. This project mainly revolves around configuring biometric signal sensors.

The project has an initial phase of surveying the commercial sensors available, and selecting one, or many, after extensive research. The sensors are selected such that they read the biometrics like Heart Rate, Accelerometer data, Respiration rate, body temperature, Pulsioximetry data,Respiratory Volume, ECG, etc.

The second phase involves developing the Device Server itself in Tango, for these selected sensors. This project is part of the current studies on the simulation of Astronaut’s Health Monitor Systems.
