The project goal is to apply pervasive computing and sensor technology to personal monitoring that can lead to improved understanding of exposure to hazardous environments and spatial context associated with environmentally mediated diseases. This work would advance efforts in understanding and combating conditions such as infectious disease, obesity, and asthma. The project was Seed Funded by CITRIS. The team successfully developed collaborations between health researchers and engineers to develop a flexible, wearable sensor system that has been successfully tested in four different settings around the world. The research has also resulted in three publications. The project continues with funding from NIH, CDC, and Nokia.
Surgical robotics and health informatics are two key technologies that form the basis of a collaboration between the First Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University (FAH-SYSU) and CITRIS.
Research partners from MITRE, CITRIS Health, UC Davis and UC Merced worked with health care teams to identify digital health barriers and co-create new ways to address them.
Working in partnership with senior living providers, Lighthouse researchers conducted focus groups with residents and staff to identify barriers to technology use.
