Bio-inspired Topology of Wearable Sensor Fusion for Telemedical Application
Application of wearable sensors is a promising approach in building novel telemedical services. In this paper, we propose the biologically inspired method for monitoring human activity in living conditions. The solution is based on the set of sensors integrated in the single wearable device and imitates the natural arrangement of human perception system. The designed wearable device enables to acquire physiological and environmental parameters. With the use of proposed appliance it is possible to collect body and ambient temperature, barometric pressure, light intensity and acceleration. In the experimental part, the signals were recorded during selected activities of daily living (ADL). The sitting activity classification was implemented using perceptron.
