Self-awareness facilitates a proper assessment of cost-constrained cyber-physical systems, allocating limited resources where they are most needed. Together, situation awareness and attention are key enablers for self-awareness in efficient distributed sensing and computing networks.
This pilot study was aimed to investigate the possibilities to use the photoplethysmographic (PPG) method for the pulse wave registration from radial artery. The PPG sensor with different separation distances between light emitting diodes (LED) and photodiode was built. The PPG signal registration was carried out at the locations with two different depths… (More)
The aim of this paper is to propose a smart optical sensor for cardiovascular activity monitoring at different tissue layers. Photoplethysmography (PPG) is a noninvasive optical technique for monitoring mainly blood volume changes in the examined tissue. However, different important physiological parameters, such as oxygen saturation, heart and breathing… (More)
