Follow the Signals of Your Summer

General description

What do you think about signals? What do you think about biomedical signal processing? Have you ever thought about doing it with an Arduino?

Our bodies are constantly sending signals about our health. Those signals are very weak electrical signals, which must somehow be captured and converted into information that can be computed by software to provide real-time data about a patient's health.

That is what we are challenging you for, while tasting awesome food, relaxing on the beach and visiting the beautiful cities of Lisbon and Almada!

Do you think you've got what it takes to deal with it?
