Description

Modern sensors are obtaining novel roles in smart systems that support healthcare and wellbeing. Cloud-based computation architectures are faced with sensitive data protection requirements and legal regulations, and thus design principles focused on critical data protection and personal privacy are pushing the measured signal processing back towards the sensors. Consequently, sensors and signal processing within smart sensor systems are becoming an integral part of smart systems. Sensor intelligence also helps keep privacy intrusions for end users as low as possible. Consequently, sensors and signal processing merged into smart sensor systems are becoming an integral part of smart systems. They need to be designed for extensive use and as affordable solutions.

The topic of this special issue is the improvement of health and wellbeing for a general population by novel and preferably wireless e-sensors using Internet of Things (IoT) in smart homes.

Articles on topics dealing with a person’s health parameters, social signal recognition, e-diagnosis, vital parameters sensing, monitoring of person’s presence, psychophysical conditions, etc. are welcome.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • User-behavior segmentation and recognition supporting sensors
  • Situation-awareness sensors and IoT
  • Human social signals sensing (hesitation, fatigue, emotions, etc.)
  • Cloud-based sensor networks, living labs, and data analysis platforms as applied in personal wellbeing and healthcare
  • Sensors ethics and data protection in healthcare
  • Sensor system for noninvasive monitoring of person’s presence and their psychophysical condition
  • Multisensory system for monitoring person's vital parameters
