Pervasive sensors to tackle obesity and problems of ageing

A five-year multi-disciplinary collaboration is to develop continually available, permanently connected pervasive sensors for healthcare in the home. The collaboration will do this through data-fusion and pattern-recognition from a common platform of non-medical/environmental sensors. Dubbed SPHERE (Sensor Platform for HEalthcare in a Residential Environment), the project has received £12m in EPSRC funding and includes researchers … Continue reading Pervasive sensors to tackle obesity and problems of ageing
