Abstract
THE PROPOSED TEMPERATURE MEASURING DEVICE IS A MULTIPURPOSE ONE. IT CAN GIVE INSTANEOUS ORAL AND DEEP BODY TEMPERATURES BUT BECAUSE OF ITS ELECTRONIC SERVO SYSTEM CAN MEASURE SKIN SURFACE TEMPERATURE WITH GREAT SPEED AND ACCURACY--THUS IT CAN BE USED BECAUSED OF ITS SPEED AND ACCURACY TO RELATE VARIOUS EXTERNAL TEMPERATURES TO HUMAN CORE TEMPERATURES IN A MANNER HERETOFORE IMPOSSIBLE. THE PROJECT OBJECTIVES ARE TO TAKE THE SYSTEM'S OPERATING PRINCIPLES AND EVOLVE THEM INTO OPTIMAL CONFIGURATIONS FOR USERS IN VARIOUS MEDICAL FIELDS. THE EFFORT REQUIRES THREE TASKS: 1. DEVELOP TECHNIQUES TO REPRODUCIBLY FABRICATE THE MINUTE SENSOR; 2. REDESIGN THE POWER CONTROLLER TO BE COMPATIBLE WITH THE LOW POWER AND CONTROL REQUIREMENTS; AND 3. ARRANGE THE TEMPERATURE READOUT SYSTEM TO BE COMPATIBLE WITH USER REQUIREMENTS.
