Abstract

Shakey Wakey is a portable biomedical innovation, to wake the deaf, hearing impaired, elderly, and children to smoke detectors. The purpose of this project is to wake people to smoke detectors via a pillow that will vibrate. This project is important because 3,515 people die each year from residential fires. In order to make the project successful, a raspberry pi ( a mini-computer) was programmed to recognize the frequency of smoke detectors. Once the pi recognizes the frequency via a miniature microphone it was programmed to turn on a vibrating pad to wake the user. It is to be expected that the device will wake people to the frequency within 5 seconds to help the user safely escape the fire. The next phase of the project is to develop an app to connect to the shakey wakey and call 911 when set off.
