Model, Design and Validate system-level integrated sensors, that can be part of the Internet of Things (IoT) frameworks. Our projects are focused on smart healthcare and smart city applications.
Project 1: Application-Specific Healthcare Architectures for Internet of Medical Things
The basic components of the IoMT frameworks are simple sensors which can collect and convert a user’s physiological signals into electrical signals that are sent wirelessly to a central device. To develop efficient architectures for various healthcare applications, we leverage our expertise in areas of analog and mixed signal design, Sensor Design, and Biomedical Engineering. Our current projects are:
- Monitoring Emotional Health using wearable sensors
- Wearable for preterm infants
- Improving Women’s Health using IoT-based affective monitoring systems.
Project 2: Efficient Sensing Architectures for Smart City Applications
Smart city is an urban area which uses sensors and connected devices to monitor and manage that asset. Some of the smart city applications are: smart water monitoring system, smart meters, smart parking system and so on. Using our expertise in developing wireless sensing systems which can operate in an IoT-based smart city framework, we are working on the following projects:
- An unified IoT-controller in a connected home environment.
- Detecting and Monitoring Oil and water leak using IoT framework.
- A medical response plan for tourists in a smart city framework.
Project 3: Developing an Inclusive Learning Environment for Smart Healthcare Education
The aim of this project is to develop training materials and modules that can help interested candidates to learn different aspects of research involved in the multi-disciplinary Smart Healthcare domain. Through this project we propose workshops, poster competitions and Hack-a-Thon’s that can kindle a spark towards smart healthcare.
