Microsleep, caused by sleep deprivation, sleep apnea, and narcolepsy, costs the U.S.'s economy more than $411 billion/year because of work performance reduction, injuries, and traffic accidents. Mitigating microsleep's consequences require an unobtrusive, reliable, and socially acceptable microsleep detection solution throughout the day, every day. Unfortunately, existing solutions do not meet these requirements. In this paper, we propose a novel behind-the-ear wearable device for microsleep…

This research presents a probabilistic architecture for Ubiquitous Network and Service Software that automates the very labor-intensive and therefore time-heavy and expensive and therefore expensive and expensive process of developing and maintaining networks.
Earable Computing: A New Area to Think About
This position paper argues that earphones hold the potential for major disruptions in mobile, wearable computing, and aims to discuss this landscape, including some challenges, opportunities, and applications.
Hearables, in-ear sensing devices for bio-signal acquisition: a narrative review
The challenges and capabilities of hearables used to monitor human physiological signals are analyzed to improve practicability and implementation, wireless connectivity, battery life, impact of motion/environmental artifacts and comfort need to be addressed going forward.
Towards Long-term Non-invasive Monitoring for Epilepsy via Wearable EEG Devices
These algorithms are parallelized and optimized for a parallel ultra-low power (PULP) platform, enabling 300h of continuous monitoring on a 300 mAh battery, in a wearable form factor and power budget, and pave the way for the implementation of affordable, wearable, long-term epilepsy monitoring solutions with low false-positive rates and high sensitivity.
Wearability and Comfort of Earables During Sleep
The results suggest that available form factors are mostly not suitable for sleep and future earable designs can increase comfort by placing rigid parts behind the ear and using soft materials at the concha and in the ear canal.
eBP: an ear-worn device for frequent and comfortable blood pressure monitoring
The key novelty of eBP includes a light-based inflatable pulse sensor which goes inside the ear, a digital air pump with a fine controller, and BP estimation algorithms that eliminate the need of blocking the blood flow inside the ears.
Epileptic Seizure Detection and Experimental Treatment: A Review
This article discusses recent advances in seizure sensing, signal processing, time- or frequency-domain analysis, and classification algorithms to detect and classify seizure stages, and explains the fundamentals of brain stimulation approaches, including transcranial magnetic stimulation, and how to use them to treat seizures.
Opportunities in the Cross-Scale Collaborative Human Sensing of 'Developing' Device-Free and Wearable Systems
A future of IoT human sensing systems that achieves seamless sensing across multiple scales through collaborative information inference by both categories of modalities is envisioned.

Inter-individual variability of EEG features during microsleep events
Abstract This paper examines the question of how strongly the spectral properties of the EEG during microsleep differ between individuals. For this purpose, 3859 microsleep examples were compared
