Summary of the research project

This research project is part of a series of activities carried out with Cambridge Centre for Sport and Exercise Sciences, using smart sensors/wireless sensors and audio analysis in biomechanics and biomedical sciences.

Our approach is based on combining smart sensors, internet of things and data sonification. Sonification is the idea of analysing human movement signals and their relations by translating them into audible waveforms and using the advance sound analysis and spectral techniques to distinguish, characterise and analyse their shapes, amplitudes and structural properties.

This project will investigate the design and implementation of small (possibly wearable), wireleless smart sensors with a special focus on healthy ageing.
