Textile Sensor Platform

Challenges in smart and wearable sensor design for mobile health

Granada, April 2018. A textile sensor platform developed in the IoT Laboratory of Prof. Dr. Martínez Madrid and the rapid prototyping platform WearIT have been presented at the IWBBIO 2018 conference in Granada. This work is in line with two more results presented: the Textile Sensor Platform and a review on health systems monitoring a patients sleep behavior with the help of a bed or Cushion.

Workshop on Personalized and Portable monitoring

Results from personalized and portable monitoring 

Konstanz, December 2017. The overall scientific goal of the collaboration between HTWG Konstanz (Prof. Dr. Seepold), Slovak University of Technology (Prof. Dr. Lehocki) and Reutlingen University (Prof. Dr. Martínez Madrid) is to detect and analyze a person's emotion with the help of a sensor network in order to support diagnostic decisions. In this project, emotion detection requires personalized analysis of a multi-dimensional set of parameters in real-time. The set of acquired parameters include different bio vital data (like ECG, EEG, skin conductivity, etc.) together with non- bio vital data (like location, movement/activity detection, activity in social media, etc.). These parameters are stored in a time-series of multidimensional matrices. Different parameters of both types (vital and non-vital) can be combined in subsets to perform pattern-based emotion recognition. For example, stress is associated with certain ECG-patterns (increased heart rate), and the recognized activity (for example running) can be used to strengthen or weaken (as in this case) the emotion recognition result.

User Interfaces in Mobile eHealth

Requirements Analysis for User Interfaces in Mobile eHealth Applications

Granada, April, 28 2017. Medical applications are becoming increasingly important in the current development of health care and therefore a crucial part of the medical industry. Armando Stattis work presented at IWBBIO 2017 focuses on the analysis of requirements and the challenges arisen from designing mobile medical applications in relation to the user interface.

Interfaces for Mobile Medical Apps

A guideline of the conceptual development of user interfaces for mobile medical applications

Girona, February/March, 2017. The goal of the Master in Smart Healthcare Systems at the university of Girona is to prepare technologists to address significant clinical challenges. The curriculum is highly oriented to professional and scientific innovation in the health services sector. Prof. Dr. Martínez Madrid presented recent research results from a IoTLab at Reutlingen University on the topic of interfaces for mobile medical applications.

Analysis of biometric parameters to detect relationships between stress and sleep quality

Analysis of biometric parameters to detect relationships between stress and sleep quality (AnBiPa) - Workshop

Ancona, November 2016. The cooperation between Università Politecnica delle Marche, Reutlingen University and HTWG Konstanz launched the workshop AnBiPa. Individual stress as well as frequent sleep disorder seems to be related with chronicle diseases like diabetes, cerebrovascular disease or other psychiatric illnesses. Besides capturing a huge amount of data, it needs to be interpreted and compared to patterns suited to detect stress and sleep quality in real-time. One are of research is to detect and analyze a relationship between stress and healthy sleep. A second domain covered by the workshop is to derive individual recommendations to improve a health life. A relevant domains are models, systems, technology and services for Ambient Intelligence and Ambient Assisted Living to improve the quality of life, especially for people with "fragility" to obtain an active longevity.

Biomedical Engineering on Portable Devices

Technologies to detect and analyze emotions with the help of sensor networks at BioPD 2016 - Workshop

Bratislava, September 2016. The cooperation between Slovak University of Technology, Reutlingen University and HTWG Konstanz launched the first workshop on Technologies to detect and analyze emotions with the help of sensor networks. There is a significant demand for tools and services supporting rehabilitation, wellbeing and healthy life styles while reducing the level of intrusiveness, increasing real-time available, reliable results and maintaining costs. Self-monitoring applications need to be improved to move beyond tracking exercise habits and capture a more comprehensive digital footprint of human behavior such that emotional states are detected and appropriate recommendations and interventions are deployed to systematically increase the overall personal wellbeing. This is especially important for aging population, as behavioral patterns may have a direct effect on the life expectancy and the cost of care. This workshop focusses on technologies to detect and analyze a person's emotion with the help of a sensor network in order to support diagnostic decisions.

Internet of Things technologies for Master students

Internet of Things: Concepts and technologies

Seville, May 18, 2016. The term 'Internet of Things' (IoT) belongs to the hypes in web technology nowadays. Even though, there are several levels to be achieved before the IoT is in place and can be used. Prof. Martínez Madrid explains to the Master students at the Universidad de Sevilla participating in the course Development of Web Applications ('Desarrollo de Aplicaciones Web'). Special emphasis has been put on explaining the origen, the stages and the evolution of this technology and the required conditions over time. Prof. Ortega (U Seville) has oragnized this session as part of the 'Máster Universitario en Ingeniería y Tecnología del Software' at the end of the lecture time before the students enter the exam period. 

Emre Yay obtained PhD degree from the University of Seville

Title of the dissertation: An adaptive and rule based driving system for energy-efficient and safe driving behaviour

Seville, May 17, 2016. Emre Yay (Reutlingen University) successfully defended his international dissertation at the Universidad de Sevilla (Spain). Emre has been member of the IoT Lab of the School of Informatics from 2012 until 2015. This has been the first cooperative PhD thesis between the Univesity of Seville and Reutligen University and it has been supervised by Prof. Juan Antonio Ortega and Prof. Natividad Martínez. The work has obtained the highest possible mark (Excellent cum laude). The PhD furthermore fullfills the criteria to obtain the European PhD label of the University of Seville as it has been developed in two EU countries and defended in front of an international tribunal.  

Doctorate Course on IoT

Internet of Things: Putting new technilogies in relationship to well known research domains

Seville, May 2016. The cooperation between the University of Seville and Reutlingen has a very long tradition. Researchers have made longer stays at both institutions in order to enrich their own expertise and pass their experience to younger doctorate students. As an element of this tradition, today’s session forms part of this activity. Prof. Natividad Martínez contributes a session on Internet of Things. The session has been initiated and introduced by Prof. Juan Antonio Ortega head of the research group in Seville.
