OLPC project started

Category: OLPC

ECE student projects

Two of our ECE undergraduate students started to work on the design of a pulse oximeter for the XO platform, the laptop computer of the One laptop Per Child (OLPC) organisation. 

Our goal is to spead more pulse oximeters out to the developing worlds and the XO is a particularly interesting platform because it targets kids. 

The XO will serve us and the community as a health education and medical device.
