Wearable Technology is becoming increasingly popular in monitoring physiological signals. The measurements of these physiological variables can range from monitoring heart rate, respiratory pattern, respiratory rate, oxygen level concentration in the main bloodstream, blood pressure to ECG. Monitoring of these signals is not only crucial in the healthcare and industry areas but also plays a key role in day to day screening of an individual and thereby facilitating early detection and diagnosis of life-threatening diseases.
The special session aims in discussing novel techniques on unobtrusive wearable sensors and systems for physiological monitoring. It will also focus on the novel techniques that aim to improve the accuracy and the reliability of these contact or non-contact based measurements targeting particularly for long term monitoring of the physiological signals.
Submissions are welcomed on (but not limited to):
- Wearable devices
- Contact-less measurement systems
- Metrological characterization of sensors for physiological monitoring
- Metrics, algorithms and signal processing techniques
- Physiological variables, signals, and techniques (e.g. respiratory frequency, glycaemia, blood lactate, electrocardiography, electromyography, photoplethysmography)
- Internet of things for wearables and unobtrusive monitoring systems, networking and interoperability
- Reliability, validity, and accuracy of sensors and measuring systems
- Processing for accurate signal estimation
Soumyajyoti Maji graduated with a B. Tech. degree in electronics and communication engineering from West Bengal University of Technology, Kolkata, India in 2015. He obtained the M. Eng. Sc. Degree from University College Dublin, Ireland in 2016. Thereafter, he worked as a Research Assistant in the School of Computer Science & Statistics, Trinity College Dublin from 2016-2017. He is currently carrying out research towards his Ph.D. degree in Trinity College Dublin. He is also serving as a Part-Time Assistant Lecturer in Technological University (TU) Dublin-City Campus since 2019. He is also a member of the IEEE Medical and Biological Measurements (TC-25) society. His research interests are in biomedical electronics, instrumentation, and applications.
Dr. Carlo Massaroni received his BSc (2010) and MSc (2012) in Biomedical Engineering and Ph.D. in Bioengineering (2017) from Università Campus Bio-Medico di Roma (UCBM). He is currently Assistant Professor at UCBM. His research interests are focused on the design, development and assessment of sensors, measuring systems and devices for physiological measurements, with particular emphasis on the design of wearable and unobtrusive systems for the measurement of respiratory and cardiac parameters, tests of available technologies for non-invasive measurement in the medical field, fiber optics for development of sensors and measuring chains for medical field. He is a member of the IEEE, IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society, IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology, ISB, ESB, and IET. He is currently the Chair of the “Sensors for Biomechanics” technical committee of the IEEE Sensors Italy Chapter.
