In this paper we propose a new architecture of a non-invasive, continuous blood glucose monitoring system, based on dielectric spectroscopy. In particular we design the electrical circuit, the schematic and the PCB of a mixed signal system working in a frequency range 1 MHz – 160 MHz, where the best performances in terms of electrical changes in the blood(More)
In this paper we discuss the possibility of implementing a novel bio-sensing platform based on the observation of the shift of the leaky surface plasmon mode that occurs at the edge of the plasmonic band gap of metal gratings, when an analyte is deposited on top of the metallic structure. We report numerical calculations, fabrication and experimental(More)
We propose a medical electronic-computerized platform for diagnostic use, which allows doctors to carry out a complete cardio-respiratory control on remote patients in real time. In the context of telemedicine the proposed system can be considered as a really innovative product in which all the most advanced technologies of biomedical engineering converge(More)
signed using 3 identical CNTFET, while resistors represent parasitic elements. The further fourth NOT gate has been used only to load the third stage. We have simulated the circuit driven by a 14ps clock, also in this case the CNT quantum inductance is negligible since the magnitude of the inductive reactance is much smaller than the resistances RD, RS. In(More)
We report on the formation of plasmonic bandgaps in two-dimensional periodic arrangements of gold patches. Orthogonal arrays of subwavelength slits with different periodicities have been studied by means of a three-dimensional finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) code, changing incident polarization and geometrical parameters. Spectral response of gold(More)
The survival of patients submitted to Intensive Care Unit is often related to the mechanical ventilation, which makes up for serious respiratory insufficiencies but can also become a lethal health risk. To decrease these risks, the respiratory cycle has to be continuously monitored and a real-time suitable setting of the ventilator is required, in order to(More)
In this paper, an accurate range sensor for the three-dimensional reconstruction of environments is designed and developed. Following the principles of laser profilometry, the device exploits a set of optical transmitters able to project a laser line on the environment. A high-resolution and high-frame-rate camera assisted by a telecentric lens collects the(More)
Background (BG) modelling is a key task in every computer vision system (CVS) independently of the final purpose for which it is designed. Even if many BG approaches exist (for example Mixture of Gaussians or Eigenbackground), they can not efficiently process real time videos due to the model complexity and to the high throughput of the video flux.
