Miller, B., LaPenta, D.: Sharpening that competitive edge. Moisture absorbing materials could be embedded with RFID tags for detection of moisture, because their dielectric constant might be altered by the water content in the environment. The Intelligent Home Monitoring System at the University of Virginia [49] focuses on collecting data using a set of cheap, unobtrusive sensors. It is also important to analyze the gait and the correct execution of movements in training and racing in real time. Eng. Combining health monitoring systems with smart home technologies (Fig. Springer, Heidelberg (2006). University of Delaware, 11 December 2017. Introducing Textbook Solutions. Different types of gas sensors exist such as optical, surface acoustic wave (SAW), electrochemical, capacitive, catalytic, and semiconductor gas sensors. A, Shan, M., Li, X., Zhu, C., Zhang, J.: Gas concentration detection using ultrasonic based on wireless sensor networks. Sensors and wearables allow continuous physiological monitoring with reduced manual intervention and at low cost. Service layer contains an e-health application, which analyses the received data and suggests methods to improve patient’s condition or give a prescription. The difference between both of them is that compressible capacitive strain sensors are composed of elastic dielectric, while the piezoresistive sensors are composed of robust dielectric placed between 2 flexible electrodes. Pervasive Mob. Similar to telemetric monitoring systems for high-risk patients, relatively simple AAL systems can perform two main tasks: In order to track precisely the position of elderly people, a precise positioning sensor network should be developed in real time. CNTs could be categorized in two: single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs). The RFID tag is a microchip with programmed identification plus an antenna. Background: The human activity monitoring technology is one of the most important technologies for ambient assisted living, surveillance-based security, sport and fitness activities, healthcare of elderly people. Tzanova, S., Codreanu, N.: Training microsystems technologies in an european eLearning environment. Qi J(1), Yang P(2), Waraich A(3), Deng Z(4), Zhao Y(4), Yang Y(5). Our in-home sensors and predictive analytics capabilities detect changes in daily activities that could indicate potential health issues. But from a commercial point of view, this technology is the most utilized one for commercial devices and can take the form of a belt or watch, for example. In this paper, a review of IoT based smart health monitoring systems is presented. De Florio, V., Blondia, C.: Service-oriented communities: visions and contributions towards social organizations. 511–536. They can be used also as a substrate of the RFID tag antenna because the dielectric constant of moisture absorbing materials could be regulated by the moisture of the neighboring air. There are also systems that can not only detect a fall but also can specify the fall type. Getting older, people’s bodies pass through some physical changes making them more fragile, and more prone to falls. Health Monitoring Systems (HMSs) provide alternatives to the traditional management of patients reducing hospitalization and the cost of formal health care, and allowing disease prevention and related lifestyle changes.

Microchimica Acta. : A RFID case-based logistics resource management system for managing order-picking operations in warehouses. The results in this area have a direct public impact. Based on these results, an analysis of the style of swimming and assessment of the necessary adjustments is made. The oxygenation may be separated into three groups: tissue, venous and peripheral oxygenation. Modern methods of testing include periodic tests in specialized laboratories or analysis of daily profiles (periodically over several hours), using a portable blood analyzer at home. Klauk, H.: Organic Electronics: Materials, Manufacturing and Applications. However, the attenuation method is not so reliable as the method of sound speed because it is prone to the presence of particles and droplets or the turbulence in the gas. The AAL’s assume that the older adults are passive and weak by default and it is not true in all cases as some people desire to support monitoring. Typically the activity monitoring device will be a multisensor device utilising inertial sensors (triaxial accelerometers and triaxial gyroscopes) running at 100Hz to 200Hz for good resolution. The drawback of this method comes from handling uncertainty and temporal information. Part of Springer Nature. To enhance selectivity and sensitivity of sensing, CNTs are often combined with other materials. Lin, Y.-L., Kyung, C.-M., Yasuura, H., Liu, Y.: Smart Sensors and Systems. 207–234. This task is performed through data analysis techniques. Sensor technologies have begun to enter the telehealth landscape and are primarily focused on continuous monitoring and precise diagnostics to inform management of various health conditions and diseases. The publication of Wang et al. : Flexible wireless pressure sensor module. (eds.) In: International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks and Technologies – ANT, Paris, France (2010). In brief, the objectives of information technology are to make not just information machines, but information environments that are allowing the access to information from everywhere.

In contrast to the silicon SMOS technology where MOSFETs are made on silicon substrate, TFTs could be fabricated on substrates such as plastic, glass, paper, etc. Sensors. Technologies that can track changes in activities and alert the care provider are: a smoke detector; flood detector; temperature sensor; gas detector; occupancy sensor for bed; occupancy sensor for the chair; a fall detector; hanging around the neck, on the wrist, or clinging to clothing; an epilepsy sensor located under the bed and more. Vis. 6180, pp. : Evaluation of two gas chromatography-olfactometry methods: the detection frequency and perceived intensity method. The transmitter uses a microcontroller which detects the patient’s pulse and converts it to a voltage signal and then displayed. A distinctive characteristic of processors in motes is that they have several modes of operation – typically active, idle, and sleep. The services and systems developed aim being tailored to elderly people and their cognitive problems. Smart Sensors and Systems, pp. Carbon nanotube sensors overcome the problem of insufficient sensitivity at room temperature observed at MOS sensors. Fritz, J., et al. If the older user has suffered a fall or an unpleasant event, the system should alert caring personnel without any interference. As a result, the technology adapts to the user, not vice versa. Remote healthcare monitoring, which is based on non-invasive and wearable sensors, actuators and modern communication and information technologies offers efficient solutions that allows people to live in their comfortable home environment, being somehow protected. Download as PDF. The actions that follow are based on probabilistic or statistical classification. LNCS, vol. Nowadays with the advances in organic electronics, the production of OLED (organic light emitting diode) and organic photo-detectors became prime devices for use in pulse oxygenation measurement due to their comfort in use [77]. In: Proceedings of 2nd International Conference on Information Science and Engineering (ICISE 2010), Hangzhou, China (2010). For cost-efficient commercialization of SoC sensors, it is crucial that all manufacturing processes are completely compatible with CMOS technologies [15]. Contactless sensor systems provide 24-h surveillance of the elderly in their homes by collecting data from different sensors and fusing them from the so- “Data aggregators”. CVIU J.

It aims to help elderly people to carry out their daily activities, thereby increasing their autonomy [47]. Quality of life is deteriorating with aging, which leads to worsening the skills and abilities of the people [43]. : AMON: a wearable multiparameter medical monitoring and alert system. Springer, Cham (2015). Malnourishment, independence and activity are becoming vital metrics when monitoring in patient’s illness. Many authors have discussed the requirements and engineering aspects of ALS. The Rochester University [50] developed a prototype smart medical home, consisting of computers, infrared sensors, video cameras and biosensors. While the monitored object performs any type of action, the sensors generate signals. Monitoring devices described in research however express issues in the consistent remote capture of these metrics. Course Hero is not sponsored or endorsed by any college or university. : Designing a pervasive healthcare assistive environment for the elderly. ESP32 and IoT merge to be a new technology for creativity in the healthcare system. In: Proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Information Technology: New Generations, pp. Syst. In this paper, we present an IoT based health monitoring and fall detection system for elderly people [1]. The reason for using these technologies is the ease of integration onto a CMOS chip in which the electrical signals are processed. In today’s complex healthcare environment, the demands on clinicians are immense. In general, optical sensors could attain better selectivity, sensitivity, and stability in comparison to non-optical methods. In the first case, sensors with different signals are merged, while in the second case, data is merged from sensors operating in different situations. Such sensors are described in details in [87]. Propag. Cedras, C., Shah, M.: Motion-based recognition: a survey. Sensors for Health Monitoring discusses the characteristics of U-Healthcare systems in different domains, providing a foundation for working professionals and undergraduate and postgraduate students. Activity recognition is a complex process. The purpose is to preserve power without obstructing the CPU operation when it is required. It is reported that these sensors have 0.005 Pa sensitivity and 0.1 ms response time. Despite extensive research for more than two decades, however, only a few breath sensors have been translated into clinical practice. Perception layer contains different medical and environmental sensors that are collecting data in real-time.

Since the end of the last century, global trends have seen a rapid increase in the share of elderly people. Body sensor network systems can help people by providing healthcare services such as medical monitoring, memory enhancement, medical data access, and communication with the healthcare provider in emergency situations through the SMS or GPRS [1,2]. This chapter presents an overview of many wearable devices of different types that have been proven in medical and home environments as being helpful in Quality of Life enhancement of elder adults. The whole system should be easy to use by the elderly. States, based on data from the National Pharmaceutical Council (2003): The cost of hospital admissions is an estimated $8.5 billion annually just for. A RFID can turn common daily objects into mobile network nodes that might be followed and monitored, and can respond to action requests. Lu, S.-S., Chen, H.-C.: Wireless CMOS bio-medical SoCs for DNA/protein/glucose sensing. Their shortcomings include lack of long-term stability, reversibility and reduced selectivity [3]. Physiol. IEEE Trans. Besides, there are plenty of appearing sensor applications to spread across large areas while retaining flexibility and comfortability. International Newsletter on Micro-nano Integration: Ambient Assisted Living. 8). Mitrokotsa, A., Douligeris, C.: Integrated RFID and sensor networks: architectures and applications. Sensors with integrated RFID tags can be classified in two categories: (1) tags communicating with RFID readers only and (2) tags communicating with each other and creating an ad hoc network [38]. So far these are relatively separate areas of research and development. API layer includes various application programming interfaces (APIs). Homes are equipped with sensors that measure the state of the users and maintain communication with their friends and relatives. 109–125. When an external pressure is applied to the dielectric, it will lead to change in the capacitance of the device. IEEE Pervasive Comput. As for the system designed by where fuzzy-role based inference system for healthcare monitoring is used for detection and diagnosis by using various sensors like temperature sensor, pulse oximetry, ECG senor and heart beat sensor depending on their characteristics that define the patient's condition according to the dispatching rule in rule base. ESP32 connects device sensors and actuators through GPIO pins. This device may be a dedicated computer or black box equipped with one or more wireless interface cards. Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) comprises huge number of sensor nodes (also called motes) that are spatially distributed autonomous devices that can accept input information from the connected sensor(s), process the information and transmit the output to other devices via a wireless network. : Smart blood bag management system in a hospital environment. Smart monitors can constantly monitor patients and their vital parameters. In order to cover the whole area, the system has to be installed in all needed rooms which is one of the drawbacks of such systems. Nevertheless, regardless of the number of cameras installed, continuous monitoring is still restricted to the camera locations. Beside the already described attachment techniques, the sensors can be also placed within the object’s environment as long as the position allows the tracking activity. The provided data can be a series of video or digitally presented visual image. In 2035, one-third of the Europeans will be over the age of 65 [41]; for the USA this figure is expected to rise to 70 million in year 2030. Technologies that can track changes in activities and alert the care provider are: a smoke detector; flood detector; temperature sensor; gas detector; occupancy sensor for bed; occupancy sensor for the chair; a fall detector; hanging around the neck, on the wrist, or clinging to clothing; an epilepsy sensor located under the bed and more. The proposed assistance aims at increasing the autonomy and quality of life of the consumer and contributing to its social consolidation. Various initiatives have been taken to handle these issues. We will classify the following activities and will explore how these technologies are implemented in several fields, such as: Biomedicine: monitoring biological functions of human; Bio signal interfaces: using bio signals for performing activities; Physical therapy and sports – this science studies sports and human achievements in this field; Smart sensors are devices able to acquire, process and display data to users. Healey, J., Logan, B.: Wearable Wellness Monitoring using ECG and Accelerometer Data (2005). This is due to the fact that wired sensor networks on the scale that is required would be too expensive to set up and maintain, which means they are unusable for applications such as monitoring of the environment, health, military, etc [25]. Not affiliated However, some MOS sensors need high operating temperature, which restricts their application. Nevertheless, the identity and location of an object is still vital information and it can be extracted by RFID techniques. : Monitoring body temperature of newborn infants at neonatal intensive care units using wearable sensors. Planar semiconductor (CMOS technology) devices can be used as the foundation for biological and chemical sensors where sensing can occur optically or electrically. Passive tags have limited processing and communication capabilities but have no sensing capabilities for the information-carrying medium [33]. Interaction of a charged probe will result in accumulation or depletion of carriers within the transistor structure, which can be electrically detected by observing a direct variation in conductance or related electrical property [16]. Micro and nanocantilevers exhibit change of surface stress caused by a particular biomolecular interaction, for example, self-assembled monolayer arrangement, hybridization of DNA, cellular and antigen-antibody binding. 3) Medical Server for Healthcare Monitoring (MSHM). MOS based sensors have been widely utilized as they are low cost and have high sensitivity. The use of multiple multi-modal miniature sensors enables a robust capture of activities to be accomplished by monitoring interactions between a person and an object. GCN Government Computer News (2008). A typical example is a Health-care Monitoring System (HMS) that mostly uses a microcontroller, which tracks and processes health data and sends an SMS to a doctor’s mobile phone or any family member who could provide emergency aid (Fig. OTM 2010. In this paper, we present an IoT based health monitoring and fall detection system for elderly people [1]. Such kind of performance ensures that the sensor can be used for blood pressure measurements. Patients who use electrically powered wheelchairs can move freely. Lee, S., Mase, K.: Activity and location recognition using wearable sensors. For monitoring people at risk, a combination of environmental sensors (temperature, gases, moisture etc. Successful use of this technology depends on lifetime of the battery-powered sensor nodes. Respiration rate is very indicative parameter for distinguishing diseases as asthma, sleeping apnea, anemia, etc. Multiwall CNTs have been employed for remote sensing of carbon dioxide (CO2), ammonia (NH3), and oxygen (O2) [9]. 333–342. The quick advances in materials widens the opportunities for manufacturing organic transistors and circuits using printing processes. Blood pressure is typically detected using sphygmomanometers, but they need stationary setup, not cost effective and do not have the possibility of monitoring. Smart sensors are key integral elements of the IoT notion. Biomed. Some wearable technology applications are designed for prevention of diseases and maintenance of health, such as weight control and physical activity monitoring. Comput. The information was recorded and analyzed in an integrated data system. Deviations from these norms can, be important warning signs of emerging health problems and can enable care-, In addition to widely used fire, security, and home gas detectors, there are, other sensors that can monitor appliances to detect whether a household appli-, ance is turned on or off and can sometimes switch the appliance on and off for, the resident. Ford further announced that they are leveraging Ford SYNC so that it will connect with other devices such as cloud-based Internet services, Bluetoothu001b, asthma management tools, diabetes management service and Web-based allergen alert solutions. : Cantilever sensors: nanomechanical tools for diagnostics. The methods for respiration rate measurement can be divided into two types, the first one detects directly the airflow during the breathing, the second one measure indirectly responding to chest and its expansion and contraction. IET Digital Library. They can be used as parameters for data integration, probabilistic or statistical analysis. Improving each jump requires a lot of work and hours on ice. Dedicated sensors and networks are already deployed in industrial setups ranging from oil refineries to manufacturing lines. Other researches describe magnetic sensitive sensors which are able to measure quasi noncontact pulse rate. Sensor and Activity-Monitoring Systems Sensor and activity-monitoring systems can track activities of daily living of sen- iors and other at-risk individuals in their place of residence. One approach is the called Assisted Living Systems (ALS). The system has low power consumed hardware design and highly efficient algorithm which could extend the service time of the wearable device. 183–205. Contemporary technology advancements, including electronics, digital embedded systems, wireless communications, and signal processing, have made it possible to develop sensor nodes with sensing, control, data processing, and networking features. In the different swimming styles, the turn type and speed and resistance are measured. Active tags have a dedicated power supply (a battery). The indirect measures involve physical parameters that need to be monitored, as changes in the lung volume and movement. Wearable technologies can be innovative solutions for healthcare problems. Foremost among all is the factor of security. A tag (analogous to a barcode) is a unique entity that can be attached to an object or a person and thereby enables information environments to remotely distinguish objects and individuals, track their position, detect their status, etc. Compared to other identification systems (e.g. For many types of sports, the main thing is running, jumping and throwing. An important step toward the wider adoption of identification and sensing technologies would be the implementation of techniques, methodologies, and approaches that are mature enough to be used in a wide range of applications. Holzinger, A., Ziefle, M., Röcker, C.: Human-computer interaction and usability engineering for elderly (HCI4AGING): introduction to the special thematic session. The proposed architecture presents both health monitoring and fall detecting on together. Human activity recognition includes mobile computing [90], surveillance-based security [91], context-aware computing [92] and ambient assistive living [93]. Different researchers do experiments using systems to monitor daily activities, activity, exercises and medical tests. There are methods proposed in [75], where negative temperature coefficient resistors a temperature sensing element is used and the textile wires incorporated into the sensor element are integrated into wearable system for monitoring, in this case baby jacket. Common are computer vision techniques for action extraction, feature extraction, structural modelling, motion detection, and motion tracking to specify pattern recognition. In any case, the quantification of the acoustic impedance of gases is remarkably troublesome, particularly in a process environment and consequently it is rarely used in practice. : Head impact biomechanics in youth hockey: comparisons across playing position, event types, and impact locations.

IEEE Microwave Mag. : Head impact exposure in collegiate football players. They are commonly attached to walking-aid devices (cane, walker, etc.). Health monitoring and fall detection using IoT advantages can improve the daily lifestyle of elderly people. There are several means that can be used for measurements, such as thermistors, thermoelectric effect, optical means, etc. In this way, the elderly will be monitored in different situations. In: Meersman, R., Dillon, T., Herrero, P. In result, the tag is not required to create a transmitted signal, and the impedance switching sample is utilized to encode the data in the tag. Depending on the type of sensor, there are two categories of activity recognition sensors. The most common technique for non-invasive measurement using wearable sensors is the thermistor. In the 2000s, a new approach based on sensors utilizing other sensors fixed to objects was development. Springer, Berlin (2008). Sensors, Alwan, M., et al. - Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Program in Media Arts & Sciences (1997), Zhang, Y., Yang, L.T., Chen, J.: RFID and Sensor Networks: Architectures, Protocols, Security, and Integrations. 168–185 (2006). Wearable sensors focus mainly on mobile computing. The normal state for the human organism is considered as 95% to 100% blood oxygen level. Many WSNs are intended to collect sensitive data (e.g. Unfortunately, a fall detection system does not detect all fall cases. IEEE Sens. In: Cuenca, P., Orozco-Barbosa, L. These systems collect the data in passive mode and do not create electromagnetic pollution. Ann. There is a great interaction between biomedical and sports applications. They include Amazon’s Echo Show and video monitoring cameras like Blurams.Also, motion sensor devices such as EnvoyAtHome for complete monitoring.. As the number of people over the age of sixty grows, most want to stay in their homes as long as possible. Various projects are aimed at solving many problems of some groups (adults, adults with special needs and people with diseases). The API layer is a layer that stores new patient health information by generating a profile using one API, and displays existing medical information for a previously registered patient data using another API. Other components of the supervision include cameras and sensors with a built-in accelerometer. So, the faster help is very important in these cases [61]. 18 Required technologies include products and services that allow people to perform their everyday tasks. Gas sensing systems are increasingly investigated for applications in environmental monitoring (air quality control, fire detection), automotive industry (fuel combustion monitoring and polluting gases of automobiles), industrial production (process control automation, detection of gases in mines, detection of gas leakages in power stations), medical applications (e.g., electronic noses, alcohol breath tests), boiler control, home safety, etc [2].
