The goal of this project is to design and implement a low energy wearable EEG sensor. The proposed EEG sensor node consists of an ultra-low-energy analog front-end that detects and amplifies a bio signal, a dedicated ultra low-power digital signal processor (DSP) to extract context-of-interest, and a network transmitter to efficiently transmit collected data. In addition, low energy operation is of primary importance in realizing "continuous" wearable healthcare sensor with limited energy source. This project is a convergence of both healthcare and sustainability, which will become an engine for Abu Dhabi's future.
Low energy circuit technology is a key means of conserving energy in advanced microelectronic devices and the advanced circuit techniques developed as part of this project are directly relevant to Abu Dhabi's evolving semi-conductor industry.
