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. 

Stress in Driving

Systems Medicine for the Delivery of Better Healthcare Services

Nicosia, April 2016. In the last decades, several driving systems were developed to improve the driving behavior in energy-efficiency or safety. However, these driving systems cover either the area of energy-efficiency or safety. Furthermore, they do not consider the stress level of the driver when showing a recommendation, although stress can lead to an unsafe or inefficient driving behavior.

Internet of Things Lectures

Challenges and Experiences

Nicosia, March-April 2016.

The Internet of Things (IoT) seems to be omnipresent in our current world. Whether in smart homes, in connected cars, in smart factories or health technologies, many developments are related to IoT. But what is actually the Internet of Things and what is new about it?

Experimental sleep phases monitoring

Developing a simplified system for home monitoring

Las Vegas, Feburary 2016. Sleep is an important part of our life, since we spend, on average, one third of it sleeping. Studies have shown that essential health functions like memory consolidation, organ repair and growth occur almost completely during sleep. To evaluate the quality of a person´s sleep it is necessary to identify the sleep stages and their durations.   

An initiative for home and living spaces

Define a clear perspective and identify the main challenges

Ancona, Octiober 2015. Future-oriented living scenarios have to take into account several technological and non-technological drivers. During the last decades many technological advancements have been achieved, documented and some of them are pushed until into a pre-market status.   

IoT - Challenges and experiences

Spectra Solution Days 2015 on Internet of Things and Industrie 4.0

Reutlingen, September 2015. Internet of Things is becoming a crucial part of the technological and business strategies of many companies. Specially small and medium enterprises need a lot of information regarding requirements, capabilities and experiences in the Internet of Things, as well as its challenges and solution approaches. The company Spectra organized a seminar for user companies, technology providers and researcher to discuss the role of the Internet of Things in the new Industrie 4.0.  

Personalized body-area network design

Supporting preventive medicine and health care

Ancona, September 2015. The symptoms and causes for different health problems reflect on several vital signals, like for example the heart rate and its variability, breathing, skin temperature and conductance, movement patterns, etc. and can be detected through biomedical sensors. The integration of such sensors together with a communication interface is known as a body-area network (BAN). 

Energy-efficiency and safety relevant driving

Evaluation of an energy-efficiency and safety relevant driving system on a driving simulator

June 2015. An energy-efficiency and safety relevant driving system was developed that tries to improve the driving behavior in terms of energy-efficiency and safety by showing recommendations to the driver. During the evaluation, the influence of the driving system on the energy-efficiency and safety of the driving behavior will be measured on a driving simulator.  

Holter ECG recordings based on Dynamic Cluster Analysis

Unsupervised dynamic clustering analysis methodology

June 2015. At the IDT conference, a new clusterung approach has been shown. The proposed approach applies current unsupervised clustering approaches in a different dynamic manner. Instead of taking all the data as input and finding clusters among them, the given approach clusters Holter ECG data (long-term electrocardiography data from a Holter monitor) on a given interval which enables a dynamic clustering approach (DCA).

Galileo on board

Support from Intel’s University Program

Reutlingen, December 2014. The IoT Laboratory received support from Intel’s University Donation program. Intel is supporting selected Universities with the new Intel® Galileo Gen 2 board that has been recently released. Prof. Dr. Martínez Madrid applied to become member of the program because the Internet of Things requires powerful support by embedded platforms.
