IATI's 2nd Weekathon Demoday: The PresentationsFeb. 23, 2014
1. Face Door: Face recognition door (with a lock, bell, and a Camera). A visitor clicks the ring bell, the device takes a picture of him, sends to the cloud (Azure) and tries to detect who that person is. If he is a family member, the door is opened, if not, the image is sent to your mobile phone, and you can open the door from remote. Click here for a video featuring Face Door.

2. Driver Engagement Monitoring System: In this project we will be using the Fit-Bit, heart rate and driver's behavioral data to measure the driver engagement (arousal) level. Based on this data, we will try to manipulate the driver’s arousal level by modifying the radio volume or inducing vibrations through the Fit-Bit device. For the project's video click here.

5. Carpedia: The Carpedia project aims to enrich the experience while driving a car by providing real time user oriented information regarding places, events and monuments in the proximity of the car location.
