About

Wearable electronics has emerged as a new form of electronics that combines sensors and wireless communication to allow monitoring of vital information autonomously. Unlike typical sensor networks, wearable electronics need to form conformal and intimate contact with objects to be monitored. Furthermore, they have to be comfortable to wear while providing accurate information. Myriad applications for wearable electronics range from health monitoring, disease detection, robotics, robotic surgery, implantable electronics, driverless cars, structural monitoring, virtual reality and augmented reality.

Research

Hardware

  • How to perform accurate measurements
  • How to design and fabricate flexible and stretchable electronics to provide comfortable wearing and low cost production
  • How to address power issues

Software/data

  • How do we handle the large amount of data
  • How do we use effective algorithm to reduce artifacts from variables
  • How do we combine information from multiple types of measurements to get meaningful information

Clinical

  • What are the clinic significance of the measured information
  • How do doctors handle the vast information from the patient
  • What are the proper clinic and user measurement protocols
  • What new medical devices that can address clinic needs
