Research project: Wearable sensors for health and lifestyle monitoring

Currently Active: 
Yes

Sensors are becoming truly ubiquitous in modern societies, with widespread use in consumer products such as smartphones and fitness trackers. Recently, there has been increased interest in using wearable technology to either facilitate or drive behaviour change.

 

The idea is that such behaviour change will bring about health benefits for the wearer. For example, activity trackers that record the number of steps per day are used to encourage individuals towards adopting a more active lifestyle and thereby reduce the risk of diseases such as stroke or heart attack. In this project, the goal is to use either existing products (smartwatches, activity trackers, google glass) or customised sensors assembled on a wearable medium to develop new modes of activity tracking in order to enhance user feedback. The ideal candidate should have a first-class honours degree in engineering or computer science with some experience in programming and electronics. Interested parties should send their CVs to Assistant Professor Dr Pu Suan Hui in the first instance (suanhui.pu@southampton.ac.uk).
