Wearable health monitoring sensors are expected to be deployed ubiquitously in the near future to combat rising healthcare risks and costs. This project aims to develop modular low power IoT wearable sensors for healthcare monitoring. In the sensor, physiological data is acquired by a biomedical acquisition frontend and transmitted in real-time using a Bluetooth LE chip. An integrated ARM MCU will be used for data processing. The selected candidate will work on developing embedded hardware and software for state of the art IoT wearable sensors. The candidate will research on optimal IoT sensor and software architectures, form factors, embedded signal processing techniques for power reduction etc.
The project will involve collaboration with multi-disciplinary researchers who are working on IoT Machine learning, Biomedical signal analysis, clinicians etc. The position also provides the opportunity to gain valuable experience in design and development of healthcare systems. The successful candidate will get opportunities for presenting their work in international conferences and workshops, and publication of the research in high impact journals.
The project will be supervised by Dr. John, Dr. Barry. Applications consisting of a cover letter, Transcripts, contact details of 3 referees, and curriculum vitae should be sent to email@example.com
