Special Issue "Low-power Wearable Healthcare Sensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2019.
Wearable devices have become a must-have consumer device. Such devices are commonly seen in healthcare, fitness, and location-tracking applications. The technology behind wearable devices has now matured to the point where consumer grade devices can be used to help people manage chronic conditions, including Parkinson’s disease, stroke, diabetes, and dementia. However, for reliable deployment at home, wearable devices must now operate for a long time between charges.
Research enabling devices to last longer per charge is extremely important because, as these devices are almost exclusively powered by batteries, their size is limited for user comfort and usability. While battery capacity can be improved, research also indicates that smarter and lower power CPU architectures, improved wireless connectivity, and task scheduling can also enable devices to last longer.
Aim: To bring together the latest research into low-power wearable healthcare devices.
Scope: low-power CPU architectures; wireless personal area networks; battery management; battery recovery; charge prediction; wireless charging; memory management; sleep mode optimization; software strategies for low-power management
