Book Description :

Wearable sensors help us in taking corrective steps that will make us healthier than yesterday. Wearable sensors empower people to be productive, active and attentive by instilling in them, the need to take care of themselves. Now, smart phone users can monitor their health and fitness on their mobile devices. Smart watches, performance monitoring, virtual coaching, body temperature management, activity tracking are few applications worth mentioning. A continuous estimation of fitness level, employing these wearable devices, can potentially help users in setting personalized short and long-term exercise goals leading to positive impact on one's overall health. Efficiency, life span, power consumption and performance are among the key issues in desiring a wearable device. Where a device needs longer life, bigger battery can be used but large size leads to discomfort in wearable sensors usage, so we concentrate on smaller sized batteries and smaller devices. Smaller the size of wearable sensor goes; bigger the longevity problem arises in terms of maintaining the power to use wearable sensor efficiently. Bluetooth used as a wireless link communication between wearable sensor and handheld devices or computer drains wearable device power faster. In this context prolonging battery life is one among major challenges that needs to be addressed in a wearable system. In this study, we address various efficient power management techniques for wearable sensors and decisions taken during designing a software algorithm, since software is also one among key factors that drives the hardware of a wearable sensor. This thesis is organized as follows: first, the wearable sensor hardware and firmware are described. Next, power management techniques, provided by the manufacturer are presented. Finally, power budget analysis and efficient power management methods are illustrated with results. Chapter 1 details the importance of wearable sensor and uses in variety of fields.

Book Description :

Wearable sensors present a new frontier in the development of monitoring techniques. They are of great importance in sectors such as sports and healthcare, as they permit the continuous monitoring of physiological and biological elements, such as ECG and human sweat. Until recently, this could only be carried out in specialized laboratories in the presence of cumbersome, and usually, expensive devices. Sweat monitoring sensors integrated onto textile substrates are not only part of a new field of work but, they also represent the first attempt to implement such an innovative idea on a system which will be worn directly on the body.ÿ ÿ The objective of this book is to present possible designs and technologies of low cost wearable sweat rate and conductivity sensors integrated onto a textile. The first chapter deals with a preliminary introduction on sweat production and composition, and the applications of wearable devices. Further, the second chapter describes the conductivity sensor, i.e. the geometry, materials and the coupling which includes a temperature sensor for precise measurements are discussed. This is followed by a chapter on the sweat rate sensor, and the technologies employed to fabricate it. Sensors that are based on a) conductive yarns coated with hydrophilic polymers, b) conductive polymer fibres, c) hydrophilic polymers between conductive fabrics and d) humidity sensors are described in detail. Finally, the last chapter provides a study of sweat production in different body areas, the calibration procedure, and summarizes the results which arise from the tests on volunteers.

Book Description :

Biometrics is concerned with measurement and analysis of a universal, unique and measurable physiological or behavioural characteristic. Biometric data is taken from individuals, extracting feature sets from the data and comparing it with the enrolment set in a database. Existing analyses techniques using wearable sensors are applied to gait analyses in children for biometric gait recognition. The performance degradation for children walking compared to adult walking is approximately 100%. A 6.21% Equal Error Rate (EER) for adult gait recognition was reached compared to 12.69% for children. Carrying an object showed that the performance actually improved compared to normal walking. However, faster walking was unstable resulting in a higher Equal Error Rate (EER). Age and gender differences showed significant variations in EER values. A coupled approach of statistical time-domain and frequency domain methods was employed to match biometric gait signals. Using root mean squared, crest-factor and kurtosis obtained similar matches in gait signals of children for the ages of 5-16 than for the traditional methods.

Book Description :

Wearable sensors, and specifically inertial measurement unit (IMU) based wearable sensors, are becoming more commonplace in research, medical diagnostics, and commercial environments. The data provided by these sensors can provide information about the person wearing the sensor and how they interact with their environment as part of the internet of things. Algorithms that process and analyze the data from these sensors are necessary to provide useful and valuable information from the sensors. Access to high quality data from these sensors is necessary to develop the requisite algorithms and techniques. In this dissertation, we present a database and novel toolset to provide access to wearable sensor data as well as innovative techniques to provide information and environmental context from wearable sensors. Developing algorithms for wearable sensors requires access to data for testing and validation. First, we introduce the MotionSynthesis Toolset, a database and related tools, to provide access to data from wearable sensors and the ability to generate new data based on the information in the database. Second, we also present a method to fuse data from two IMU sensors to provide localization of a human subject and an algorithm that can be used to improve the estimates of the orientation of wearable sensors, which could be used to further improve estimates beyond the raw sensor data. Combining data from multiple sensor sources will enable the determination of context and decision making requires that the data from the sensors is synchronized. Therefore, our third contribution is a set of techniques that can be used to synchronize sensor data in a heterogeneous sensor network based solely on the data provided by the sensor. This may be especially useful in environments where the communications protocols amongst sensors are heterogeneous. These novel techniques and tools are validated experimentally using custom wearable sensors.

Book Description :

Wearable sensors have been widely applied in the fields of human-machine interface, medical care, and disease diagnosis. Various types of wearable sensors with different materials and fabrication methods have been developed. However, high fabrication cost, low sensitivity and large form factors have hampered their popularity of wearable applications. Paper-based sensors have shown merits of simple fabrication, high sensitivity and light weight. Biomedical, chemical, and physical wearable sensors have been developed by using paper substrate. In this dissertation, a novel manufacturing method of carbon nanotube (CNT)-paper composite is studied with characterization of mechanical and electrical properties. A fracture-induced fabrication method of a CNT-paper composite (CPC) is studied in terms of reorganization of a CNT-cellulose fiber matrix. By precise control of the applied strain, resistive and capacitive sensors are produced to enable the measurement of heart beats, grabbing force, finger motion, and eye movement. Using a CPC, a humidity sensor is developed for wearable applications. The enhancement of sensor response due to swelling of CPC coated with polyacrylic acid (PAA) is studied for detection of water vapors in air. The humidity sensor is applied for measurement of surface moisture. The CPC sensor provides a low-cost, highly sensitive, light-weight flexible platform potentially beneficial for sweat monitoring. An unobtrusive light-weight, low-cost eye tracking sensor is developed by using a capacitive sensor made of a fractured CPC. The eye movement is measured by the capacitance changes induced by the distance and permittivity change between eye ball, muscles and CPC sensors. The fabrication procedures and sensor design are optimized for best sensing performance. Finite element analysis is applied to understand the capacitive sensor made of the fracture induced nanoscale electrodes. The sensitivity and resolutions are characterized in terms of the capacitive geometry. In summary, the dissertation presents the characteristics of fractured CPC and the applications to multiple wearable sensors. A CPC coated with PAA is investigated for detection of relative humidity and moisture. The low cost, high sensitivity, light weight and easy fabrication will offer a stepping stone to advance current wearable sensing platforms.
