The Snout application platform can be improved in a number of ways. A number of
of these future improvements are mentioned here;
- A useful addition to the current approach is to transmit collected
sensor readings via Bluetooth to a hand-held device such as a PDA. This would
allow multiple users to get a fine grain view of the physical environment in
- Conversion of sensor readings into standard values as opposed
to the current method of scaling them between one and ten. This would allow
the acquired data values to be compared against any other data set.
- Faster sampling rate of the sensors in particular for the
acoustic sensor in order to provide a more real time feedback to the user,
which enhances the user interaction aspect of the application.
- Reducing power consumption of the device by switching off the
sensor board in between sampling cycles.
