AttentivU is a wearable system that helps users to stay attentive and engaged with the task in hand while providing real-time user-desired auditory (bone conduction or open-ear speaker), haptic and/or visual feedback. It helps victims of ADD/ADHD while also augmenting the cognition of all groups of people.

I designed and implemented custom hardware, electronics as well as on-board software for the wearable glasses with real-time feedback to measure attention using physiological sensors - EEG (Electroencephalography) and EOG (Electrooculography). The minimal glasses make the interface unobtrusive and increase user experience. The modular electronics and software facilitate easy and seamless integration of user-desired feedback options and different input modalities for sensor fusion.
