This research theme creates new smart connected IoT systems for health assessment and assistance. The purpose of this research is to connect Data, People and Systems in a variety of areas of value to health, such as networking, pervasive computing, advanced analytics, sensor integration, privacy and security, modeling of socio-behavioral and cognitive processes and system and process modeling. Effective solutions must satisfy a multitude of constraints arising from clinical/medical needs, barriers to change, heterogeneity of data, semantic mismatch and limitations of current cyber-physical systems and an aging population. Such solutions demand multidisciplinary teams to address issues ranging from fundamental science and engineering to medical and public health practice.
Floor activity tracking
- Smart seismic sensors in the floor of each room allow activity tracking, or in the mattress allow sleep monitoring.
- Identify family members and track activities
- Fall detection and alarm
- Monitor and assess health changes
- Two feet differ and have an unbalance
- Walking behavior changes
- Trajectory tracking. Experiments conducted at the sensorweb lab.
Contact-free sleep monitoring
A smart sensor is designed to monitor the heart and respiratory rates, and body movement and posture, during the sleep.
Smart Phone Assistive Technology
- A smartphone can sense various body parameters via audio, vibration, and camera
- Smartphone monitoring systems for recognizing cough
