Participants sought for a research study Print

We are looking for volunteers 18 to 50 years old to participate in a research study. The study will require a laboratory visit of approximately 1-1.5 hours long in which you will be wearing a sensor system and performing transitions between most common activities of everyday living (sitting, standing, and walking).

 

This study offers a $20 remuneration for the participants. For detailed information, please contact Dr. Edward Sazonov by email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and we will provide more information about the study. We must exclude you form the study if you have any current trauma of the upper or lower extremities, use an assistive device such as a walker or wheelchair and if you cannot or not willing to perform activities in the study.

 

University of Alabama IRB Approval # 12-019-ME

 
Welcome! Print

Welcome to the homepage of Computer Laboratory of Ambient and Wearable Systems!

 

The work in the laboratory focuses on applications of ambient and wearable devices. Ambient intelligence shifts the computing paradigm from personal computing to pervasive computing and distributed networked intelligence. Our work covers all steps of the way: design of the miniature embedded computer platforms, wireless sensor networks, methods of signal processing, sensor fusion and pattern recognition and classification.

 

Many the lab's projects have applications in bioengineering where ambient devices take the shape of wearable technology which unobtrusively interacts with the user. Lab's research projects have been supported by a number of federal (National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, National Academies of Science) and state (New York State Energy Research and Development Authority) agencies, and private industry.

Ambient intelligence represents a shift in paradigm from personal computing to pervasive computing and distributed networked intelligence. Development of ambient devices involves tight integration of embedded and wearable computing platforms, wireless sensor networks and development of signal processing, sensor fusion and pattern recognition methods. Many of my projects have applications in bioengineering, such as development of novel wearable devices for non-invasive monitoring of energy intake in free living population; on-body sensor network for monitoring and modification of energy expenditure behavior and on-body sensor network for monitoring of risk of falling in elderly. Other funded projects include a distributed time-synchronous sensor network for structural health monitoring and self-powered wireless sensors powered by energy harvesting devices. My research projects have been supported by a number of federal (National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, National Academies of Science) and state (New York State Energy Research and Development Authority) agencies, and private industry. Several of the developed technologies have been submitted for patenting and/or transferred to start-up companies.

EMB cover

January/February 2010 issue of IEEE in Medicine and Biology Magazine is dedicated to the theme of Energy Balance. The introductory article contains description of work performed in our lab: both on energy expenditure (the shoe-based monitor) and energy intake (the food intake monitor).

 
Our project wins an award! Print

The project on monitoring of physical activity and energy expenditure won the Bluetooth Innovation World Cup 2009! The competition included more than 250 entries from all over the world. The winning project stems back to the original sensor shoe. The device is now being commercialized by Physical Activity Innovations LLC under a grant from the National Institutes of Health.
