Abstract: This study is to implement an alarm clock that sounds based on the sleep state of the user. Using known scientific knowledge of the human sleep cycle and its characteristic brain activity, the clock sounds its alarm when the user is in an easily aroused state within a time period set by the user. The user will feel more refreshed than, if they were awakened by a conventional alarm clock (George and Humberto, 2001). There is also a function which helps in recording the hypnogram. The logical processing of brain signals was achieved through National Instruments' LABVIEW.

 

Keywords: LABVIEW; hypnograms; sleep waves; alarm clocks; human sleep cycle; brain activity; brain signals; signal processing.
