Project Description

Project Overview:

The aim of this project is to research and develop Internet of Things technologies for applications in healthcare and physiotherapy. The project will investigate methods of sensing data from the body through means other than body-worn sensors, and develop innovative IoT-based communication technologies and algorithms to enable the sensors to communicate to the Internet and solve fundamental routing and connectivity issues.
