A 39-year-old white man with a history of right renal pelvic stones treated 1 year before by extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, but with no history of major surgery, alcoholism, pancreatitis, hyperparathyroidism or trauma, was admitted, suffering from an abdominal mass. Abdominal and pelvic computed tomography revealed an enlarged pancreatic head (9 cm(More)
The aim of this paper is to propose the wireless body sensor networks (WBSNs) as an enabling technology for a rich variety of application domains, from e-Health to e-Factory. In particular, the paper will describe reference network architectures, effective programming frameworks and novel applications in important application domains for WBSNs. Finally, a(More)
The external luminance, the climatic conditions as limpid sky or haze, the road surface wet or dry, the traffic speed and the related safe driver stopping distance, strongly influence the quantity of artificial support light necessary at the entrance of the tunnel. The design of the support lighting system in the road tunnel takes into account the critical(More)
This study investigates the usability of the smartphone camera for the evaluation of arterial blood oxygenation (SpO<sub>2</sub>%). The advantage of this solution derives from the pervasiveness of the smartphone that makes available the evaluation of the SpO<sub>2</sub>% everywhere. Differently from the pulse oximeter, which uses well-defined wavelength(More)
Nowadays, monitoring the attention level of a driver is a useful tool for assuring a better degree of safety aboard motor vehicles. Recent literature reports different technologies that have been explored for evaluating various critical physical parameters of drivers. This paper presents an attempt to integrate different non-intrusive monitoring systems(More)
The paper deals with the test signal selection to be adopted for the Voice Quality Measurement (VQM) in telecommunication networks. It is proposed to use the optimized multisine as test signal in place of both the natural and the artificial voices, suggested by the ITU-T recommendations. The effectiveness of the optimized multisine to the VQM is(More)
