Real-time physical health monitoring for adolescents by using novel wearable devices and secure Internet of things architectures

Published by: admin | 29. Dec 2016

Cooperation on bilateral project between Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Beijing Normal University, China.

The first objective of the cooperation (lead: Normal Univesrity, China) is to focus on health monitoring of primary and secondary school students in Beijing City by investigating the technology combination of Internet of things, wearablesensors, cloud computing and big data analysis, which includes:

  • The development of a new kind of wearable smart wristbands, which integrates some latest high-performance sensing chips for real-time collection of a variety of physiological and physical indicators in a movement of students, including heart rate, blood oxygen saturation, acceleration, etc.
  • Physiological and physical data collected from smart wristbands will be collected and further analyzed and prepared for multidimensional visualization. The research and work in theabove described objective will be considered as an advanced research project for the construction of a large-scale cloud platform, which focuses on comprehensive evaluation of physical health and recommendation of personalized online exercise prescription.


The second objective of this cooperation (lead: Univesity of Ljubljana, Slovenia) is to evaluate the possible role of block-chain based trust in personalized health monitoring systems:

  • To define the architecture and to create a prototype for an IoT based system for participatory sensing of physical health of adolescents and younger adults based on block-chain based trust management.
  • The system will be validated in laboratory and near-real-life environment, which will in alter stages enable the involvment of the other interdisciplinary experts.
