Design and Integration
Research on mobile and wearable sensor technologies for assessment of biometric and biomarker measures of health and performance. Studies of low power wireless communications and integrated sensor design, including signature analytics and data reduction. Integration of mobile device and system designs for translating sensor platforms from the lab to human testing and evaluation. Research on utilization of 3-D printing, prototyping, and packaging approaches for the rapid assessment and validation of sensor concepts. Translational products include integrated near-field antennas and devices for low power interrogation of wearable sensors, a prototype eye-tracker device enabling imaging analysis of eye movement for prediction of stress/anxiety, and prototype printed microfluidic biomarker sensor platform. Research in Cluster 2 provides the interface between device manufacturing (Cluster 1) and human testing (Cluster 4).
