Sensor Technologies: Healthcare, Wellness, and Environmental by Michael J. McGrath, Cliodhna Ni Scanaill, Dawn Nafus

By Michael J. McGrath, Cliodhna Ni Scanaill, Dawn Nafus

Sensor applied sciences: Healthcare, well being and Environmental Applications explores the major points of sensor applied sciences, overlaying stressed out, instant, and discrete sensors for the categorical program domain names of healthcare, wellbeing and environmental sensing. It discusses the social, regulatory, and layout issues particular to those domains.

The booklet presents an application-based process utilizing real-world examples to demonstrate the appliance of sensor applied sciences in a realistic and experiential demeanour. The ebook publications the reader from the formula of the examine query, throughout the layout and validation procedure, to the deployment and administration section of sensor functions. The techniques and examples utilized in the booklet are based on study conducted by means of Intel or joint educational learn programs.

Sensor applied sciences: Healthcare, wellbeing and Environmental Applications offers an in depth evaluate of sensing applied sciences and their purposes in healthcare, wellbeing, and environmental tracking. From sensor to procedure functions and case stories, this ebook supplies readers an in-depth knowing of the applied sciences and the way they are often utilized. i'd hugely suggest it to scholars or researchers who're drawn to instant sensing applied sciences and the linked applications.”

Lecturer, The Hamlyn Centre, Imperial university of London

“This well timed addition to the literature on sensors covers the large complexity of sensing, sensor varieties, and the monstrous variety of present and rising purposes in a truly basically written and available demeanour. it's rather reliable at taking pictures the fascinating chances that might happen as sensor networks merge with cloud-based ‘big data’ analytics to supply a bunch of recent functions that would influence without delay at the person in methods we won't totally are expecting at the present. It particularly brings this domestic by using conscientiously selected case reports that carry the overpowering inspiration of 'big information' all the way down to the non-public point of person lifestyles and health.”

Director, nationwide Centre for Sensor study, important Investigator, readability Centre for Sensor internet applied sciences, Dublin urban college

"Sensor applied sciences: Healthcare, health and Environmental Applications takes the reader on an end-to-end trip of sensor applied sciences, masking the basics from an engineering standpoint, introducing how the information gleaned should be either processed and visualized, as well as delivering exemplar case experiences in a couple of program domain names. it's a must-read for these learning any undergraduate direction that consists of sensor applied sciences. It additionally presents an intensive beginning for these eager about the learn and improvement of utilized sensor structures. I hugely suggest it to any engineer who needs to expand their wisdom during this area!"

Soil A number of handheld instruments to measure the characteristics and quality of soil are in commonly use. Among the most popular are field-portable X-ray fluorescence (FP-XRF) instruments to measure metal contamination. A key advantage of the technique is that it requires almost no sample preparation, such as acid digestion. , 2013). Other commonly used instruments include temperature and moisture meters and penetrometer for the measurement of soil strength. While the performance of these instruments is normally very 34 Chapter 2 ■ Sensing and Sensor Fundamentals accurate, they suffer from the limitation of being able to provide only a single measurement in time.

This form of configuration is often used for biosensors. Conductometric sensors are generally inexpensive, making them popular. Biosensors Biosensors use biochemical mechanisms to identify an analyte of interest in chemical, environmental (air, soil, and water), and biological samples (blood, saliva, and urine). The sensor uses an immobilized biological material, which could be an enzyme, antibody, nucleic acid, or hormone, in a self-contained device (see Figure 2-5). The biological material being used in the biosensor device is immobilized in a manner that maintains its bioactivity.

While often not strictly diagnostic in terms of accuracy, in many cases these over-the-counter sensors can deliver indicative results, which can assist decision-making prior to seeking formal clinical intervention and care. Key to the proliferation of sensors in healthcare has been the development of low-cost microsystem sensor technologies coupled, in some cases, with low-cost, low-power microcontrollers (MCUs) and radios. These devices have enabled the development of small form-factor, reliable, robust, accurate, low-power sensor solutions.
