Research Interests

Our research interests include biomedical electronics and signal processing, telemedicine, wearable and implantable technologies, and health informatics. For communications, We continue to focus on the system design, signal processing, and SoC implementation for advanced MIMO and cognitive radios.

  • Biomedical electronics, tele-medicine, wearable & implantable technologies: System design, prototyping, and energy-efficient DSP processing; mobile phone sensors/apps for biomedical applications; wearable applications; interdisciplinary art team collaboration

This work starting from 2010 for the biomedical electronics. We were invited by Prof. C.-k. Wang (from the Department of Electrical Engineering, National Taiwan University, NTUEE) to join their medical electronic project and collaborated with the medical doctors from National Taiwan University Hospital. During the project, my group have developed a patient-centric medical environment with ultra low power wireless sensor chip (with Prof. T.H. Lin) and simultaneous ECG/EEG realtime monitoring using mobile phones with indoor/outdoor location capability. The mobile phone can transmit back the recorded data to the cloud for realtime analysis. The major impact is integration, including chips (medical electronics), softwares, and system. We have designed and implemented not only the hardware chips but also the firmware/software in the embedded processors or Android phones, even in the cloud server for realtime signal processing and analysis at any place any time [J2-3,C2,C4,C7,C8,C13,C16,C18]. We are currently involving on new projects to develop the infant monitoring system for sudden infant death syndrome and the healthcare system for chronic renal failure patients.

For the implantable technologies, we have also developed an integrated closed-loop deep brain neural signal recording and stimulation system for basic research and for biomedical use. Our group has successfully designed and implemented a wireless prototype for closed-loop neural signal recording/stimulation with a programmable embedded processor for symptom detection (beta band power detection, time-frequency analysis, phase detection) and related stimulation control [C2,C5,C10]. To make it even smaller and integrated, and to be put into the rat’s brain for experiments, we have developed the integrated wireless recording/stimulation chips [J1,C6,C12,C15].

A unique and innovative extension from biomedical electronics is interdisciplinary installation art collaboration. From 2014, we started to apply our developed human sensing and wearable technologies (from biomedical sensors) to collaborate with artists. We need to customize the sensors such as ECG sensors or accelerometers with mechanical structures into the installation scenario. We developed some wireless embedded controllers with customized softwares for human-installation interaction. We have already held 4 domestic/international installation shows [I1-4] and will continue with more this year.
  • Biomedical signal processing and health informatics: ECG signal preprocessing, analysis, and statistics; closed-loop neural signal processing
We have successfully built a complete signal processing scheme for ECG signal processing. The flow includes signal pre-processing (noise/baseline wander/electrode motion artifact/muscle artifact removal) and PQRST feature detection [J2,C8,C16]. We can successfully detected R-peak as people run below the speed of 9km/hr [J2,C8]. Some of the techniques can also be applied to EEG signals [C5,C10,C15]. Collaborated with medical doctors, with biomedical analysis and statistics on recorded physiological signal and patients’ health records, we can find out the effective biomarkers or the information within physiological signals [J3].
