Based on today’s estimation most of the older drivers are likely to get into an accident or collision based on their varying health conditions while driving. Nowadays, middle-age and younger drivers are also facing similar issues. Studies show that Drivers who had crashes that have been precipitated by medical emergencies are not related to vehicle design or roadway integrity as indicated by the type of crashes and manner of collisions. Six in ten Americans live with at least one chronic disease like heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Here in this paper we compare and measure heart rate and heart variability data for arising heart disease and stroke. While driving most of these conditions arise for drivers who are precipitated by chronic conditions, specially the stroke such as ischemic stroke and intracerebral hemorrhage stroke. Automakers are trying with methods that involve measuring data via seats sensors and steering wheel sensors, but for measuring sensor data also requires right placement of sensor in the body. In this paper we are working on implementing a high resolution proximity…

A High-Fidelity Human Factors Study System for Autonomous Vehicles

Clemson University-Haotian Su, Yunyi Jia

To be published on 2020-04-14 by SAE International in United States
Autonomous vehicles are leading to a new paradigm for our future transportation systems and they have been extensively studied by both academia and industries. Currently, most efforts have been focused on safety and efficiency development. However, human factors, an important topic in autonomous vehicles, have not been extensively studied. Human factors may seriously affect the comfort and user acceptance of autonomous vehicles even though their safety and efficiency are granted. To address this problem, a capable autonomous driving platform with appropriate human and vehicle information acquisitions and cost-effective implementations is needed. At current stage when there is no well-developed autonomous vehicle that can serve as full autonomous driving experimental platform for human factors study, an in-lab autonomous driving simulation system is needed for research on human factors in autonomous vehicles. Motivated by this, a high-fidelity autonomous driving simulation system is developed with multiple data collection devices for human factors research. The simulation system can generate immersive high-fidelity driving experience for the participants and consists of an autonomous driving controller, a 6-degree-of-freedom-motion seat, and multimodal visual/audio…

Microneedle Biosensors Accurately Detect Patient Antibiotic Levels in Real Time

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35621
Published 2019-12-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Small, non-invasive patches worn on the skin can accurately detect the levels of medication in a patient’s system, matching the accuracy of current clinical methods. In a small-scale clinical evaluation, researchers at Imperial College London have shown for the first time how microneedle biosensors can be used to monitor the changing concentration of antibiotics.

Wearable Sensors Could Reduce Stillbirths

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35511
Published 2019-11-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

A new technique could allow expectant parents to hear their baby’s heartbeat continuously at home with a noninvasive and safe device that is potentially more accurate than any fetal heart rate monitor currently available on the market.

Q&A: Wearable Motion Sensors Could Save Unborn Babies

One day, scopes may no longer need to be inserted into the body — such as down the throat or under the skin — to reach the stomach, brain, or any other organs for examination.

Soft, Wearable Health Monitor with Stretchable Electronics

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35136
Published 2019-09-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

A soft and conformable health monitor can broadcast electrocardiogram (ECG), heart rate, respiratory rate, and motion activity data as much as 15 meters to a portable recording device such as a smartphone or tablet computer. The electronics are mounted on a stretchable substrate and connected to gold, skinlike electrodes through printed connectors that can stretch with the medical film in which they are embedded.

High Tech Comes to Fitness Monitoring
