Description

The project involves an Android application that acts as a continuous-time monitor of glucose levels for people with Type II diabetes. Our objective was to get information from a glucose lancet meter to automatically upload via Bluetooth into the application. This allows a person to easily monitor their insulin levels without manually inputting glucose levels into the application. The glucose meter used was a ForaCare Test N’ Go system. To aid in the Bluetooth process, we were granted open access to the glucose meter from Fora Care. The process involved using the programming language of Java in the Android software developer to implement the Bluetooth application. Because the app will be able to automatically upload the user’s glucose readings from their meter, it will make insulin measurement management simpler for the user. This Bluetooth component was important to the final development of the project. The virtual sensor takes several factors into account, including blood glucose readings and meal size, and...
