In this paper we have proposed to present a system for automatic recording of the main physiological parameters of the human body: body temperature, blood pressure, respiratory rate, electrocardiogram (ECG), skin resistance, etc. To realize this system, we have developed a program that can read and automatically save in a file, the data from specialized sensors. Further it is possible to interpret of the results, by comparing them with known normal values and thus offering the possibility for a primary health status diagnosis by specialized personnel. The data received from the sensors is taken by an interface circuit, provided with signal conditioning (filtering, amplification, etc). Data acquisition is controlled by a microcontroller using an Arduino Uno standard development platform. The data are transferred to a PC, using serial communication port of Arduino platform. The whole process of health assessment is commissioned by a new program developed by us in the Python programming language. The program provides automatic recording of the aforementioned parameters in a predetermined sequence, or if you want only certain parameters are registered.

This paper presents the hardware-software co-design platform based on FPGA developed for fast prototyping of embedded systems using hardware modules that can be easily connected and “driver” modules that can manage I/O devices and sensors basic behavior. Having this framework, adding of a new I/O peripheral needs only design and synthesis of an application specific VHDL or software module. Using neural networks (NN) to add learning capabilities and adaptive behavior is essential for an intellige...

Abstract null null The impact of IoT-ML in the healthcare sector is very significant and it has helped us to change our view at the traditional treatment methods. In IoT-ML-based healthcare applications, the sensing layer is responsible for collecting information from humans and transferring it to the storage layer through communication technology. ML is implemented to make intelligent decisions for healthcare applications. This survey shows all the fields starting from the IoT sensor devices to...

Brainwave is widely used as an indicator of brain activity and can be detected by electroencephalography (EEG). The development of EEG device has become more advanced along with the invention of low-cost tiny electronic modules and wireless technology. This research aimed to develop a low-cost wireless modular device for brainwave acquisition based on Arduino microcontroller. The system was designed into sensor block for brainwave receiver and conditioning, and mainboard block for data processin...

The aim of this paper is to present the implementation of an IoT-based eHealth system for local and remote patient monitoring. This system is based on a Raspberry Pi 3 and is capable of recording data from the following sensors: blood pressure monitor, pulse oximeter, air flow, galvanic skin response and body temperature. The graphical interface allows the user to analyze historical sensor data charts and to record new data while visualizing the live chart. This interface can be accessed either ...

The inadequacy of nursing staff for chronically ill and elderly patient's is increasing. Prohibiting an independent life for themselves. Thus, there is a need for monitoring patient health which provides significant information and alerting mechanism. The purpose of the designed system is to built a model which will be helpful for real and continuous monitoring of the patient. Conventionally, numbers of techniques are used for wireless sensor networking (WSN) but that requires proprietary softwa...

One of the most challenging context features to detect when making recommendations in educational scenarios is the learner’s affective state. Usually, this feature is explicitly gathered from the learner herself through questionnaires or self-reports. In this paper, we analyze if affective recommendations can be produced with a low cost approach using the open source electronics prototyping platform Arduino together with corresponding sensors and actuators. TORMES methodology (which combines use...
