Wearable Sensor Research Topics

Wearable sensor is nothing but an electronic device which is small in size and adaptable to more environments for collecting data by being more close to the body. Continue reading this paper to gain more knowledge about this technology.

  1. Define Wearable sensor

A sensor system which is designed in order to wear or stay close to body to gather information from body either physiological or behavioral or any environmental parameters is the wearable sensor. This is a non-invasive technique used for collection of real time data by attaching the sensor to accessories, clothes or directly on the body.

  1. What is Wearable sensor?

This wireless sensor is now more popular because of its capability to provide personalized data for fitness and health which will be useful for an individual to make appropriate adjustments in lifestyle for their well-being. Usually those sensors require any display unit like mobile apps to analyze the data collected by them and to display it. This makes the users to know about their progress and to make required changes in their daily routine.

  1. Where Wearable sensor is used?

These wearable sensors have applications in different areas. The main advantage of this technology is that, it can collect data from real time by simply wearing them. It is applicable in monitoring fitness and health, management of stress and emotion, athletics and sports, monitoring environment also used in industries.

  1. Why Wearable sensor technology is proposed? Previous Technology Issues

This technology was proposed to overcome the challenges and issues faced by different industries. The wearable sensors mainly focus to bring solution for the problem caused in the modern world which is more data-driven and connected. This technology is more adapted in many industries and bringing more new innovations because of its potential to provide improved safety, life quality, productivity and health.

Now this wearable sensor has many advantages with it, but earlier it faced many challenges. The issues faced by previous technologies are:

Battery Life: Long lasting battery life for wearable sensors is very important for monitoring, but earlier one had only limited battery life. Some changes have made in it to make it more energy efficient and manage power.

Comfort and Wearability: It is very challenging to design the sensor wearable because it has to be very comfortable to wear them for long hours. A design for sensor which is more uncomfortable to wear won’t be encouraging.

Data Privacy and Security: These wearable sensors collect data which is more sensitive and personal. So they need to be secure and private.

Standardization: When there is no standard format and protocols then there may problem arise in data integration and data sharing.

  1. Algorithms / Protocols

The algorithms provided for Wearable sensor to overcome the previous issues faced by it are: “K-nearest-neighbor” (KNN), “Support Vector Machine” (SVM), “Decision Tree” (DT), Adaboost, “Linear Discriminant Analysis” (LDA) and “Random Forest” (RF).

  1. Comparative study / Analysis

Some other algorithms are used in this paper at various sections which is different from the algorithms in earlier papers to overcome the issues faced by them in detecting stress. For processing data “Filtering and artifact removal techniques” are used. By using “Hybrid Wavelet Short-Time Fourier Transform” (HW-STFT), feature extraction is done. “Recursive Least Absolute Shrinkage and Selection Operator” (RLASSO) helps in selecting feature. For detecting stress “Adam optimized sequential Generative Adversarial Network” (AOS-GAN) algorithm is used.

  1. Simulation results / Parameters

The approaches which were proposed to overcome the issues faced by Wearable sensor are tested using different methodologies to analyze its performance. The comparison is done by using metrics like Accuracy, Sensitivity, Precision, Recall, Negative predictive value, AUROC (“Area under the Receiver Operating Characteristic Curve”), AUC (“Area under Curve”), Execution time (sec) and Weighted F1 score.
