Wireless sensors with accelerometers are widely used in various studies on human body movements. The most challenging problem in a small body-attachable sensing unit is how to maximize the battery lifetime. Previously, the preferred approach was to reduce the number of transmissions through data compression. Compressed Sensing(C-S) is an emerging alternative approach that aggressively reduces the samples yet permits the reconstruct of the original analog signal. C-S has the great potential to… CONTINUE READING
