Sampling methods for physiological signals in Internet of Medical Things systems

April 21 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm CEST

Join the Meeting

Wearable measurement systems have been currently spreading as personal devices for monitoring physiological parameters. In last years, such systems are going to be integrated in Internet of Things (IoT) systems where several acquisition nodes are simultaneously connected and managed. The acquisition nodes must comply the size and energy consumption requirements of wearable devices, while allowing the streaming of sampled signals such as the Electrocardiogram and the respiration wave and providing enough accuracy to guarantee the biosignal integrity. This is even harder when the device is connected to Wide Area Network IoT systems, characterized by a lower bandwidth and a higher power consumption. To face these problems, efficient sampling strategies can be adopted aiming to reduce the data rate to be transmitted and as a consequence the energy consumption. The seminar will present the state of art of sampling methods for physiological signals and will in particular deal with methods based on compressed sensing. Compared with the others, such methods offer a lower computational load on the acquisition node, by moving it to the reception side, which in the case of IoT systems, is usually realized in the cloud.

Luca De Vito received the master’s (cum laude) degree in software engineering and the Ph.D. degree in information engineering from the University of Sannio, Benevento, Italy, in 2001 and 2005, respectively. In 2002 he joined the Laboratory of Signal Processing and Measurement Information, University of Sannio, where he was involved in research activities. In 2008, he joined the Department of Engineering, University of Sannio, as an Assistant Professor in electric and electronic measurement. He became Associate Professor in the same Department in Jan. 2020. In Aug. 2018 he received the National Academic Qualification as Full Professor. He is member of the IEEE since 2010, he is member of the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society (IMS), of the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic System Society, and of the IEEE Standards Association. He is Senior Member of the IEEE since 2012. He member of the Armed Force Communication and Electronics Association (AFCEA) and is Young President of the AFCEA Naples Chapter. He is editor of Measurement and Measurement:Sensors (Elsevier) and Chapter Chair Liaison of the IEEE IMS. He was Technical Program Co-chair of the IEEE International Symposium on Medical Measurements and Applications (MeMeA) in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
He published more than 140 papers on international journals and conference proceedings, mainly dealing with measurements for the telecommunications, data converter testing and biomedical instrumentation.

Luca De Vito, assistant professor of the Department of Engineering of the University of Sannio received from IEEE a $ 10,000 award for the proposal of a course on measurements for drones.

In Turin, during the 2017 International Instrumentation and Measurement Technology Conference, Luca De Vito, assistant professor of the Department of Engineering of the University of Sannio, received the Faculty Course Development Award (http://ieee-ims.org/awards/faculty-course-development-award) of the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society.

The IEEE, which stands for Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (www.ieee.org), is the world greatest professional association in the field of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.

Within IEEE, the Instrumentation and Measurement Society (IMS) (www.ims.ieee.org) is dedicated to the development and use of electrical and electronic instruments and equipment to measure, monitor and/or record physical phenomena.

The IMS Faculty Course Development Award, consisting of a $ 10,000 grant was established to support and encourage faculty members to develop a new course or significantly revise an existing course with specific focus on Instrumentation and/or Measurement.

The awarded proposal describes the contents of a course titled “Drone for measurement and measurement for drone”, dedicated to the measurement technologies for the drone usage, to be delivered to the students of the PhD degree in Information technologies for Engineering.
