Estimation of oxygen consumption based on wireless wearable sensors

Project Member(s): Su, S.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Bai & Co Holdings Pty Ltd

Start year: 2015

Summary: With increasingly popular wearable devices around people for sport or health purpose, ubiquitously observing status of body is becoming more realistic. This project aims to develop a mobile phone app that can estimate and predict oxygen consumption for tourist during walking. The concept of this app is based on a data model that combines the IMU (Inertial measurement unit) of mobile phone (or a wearable device on wrist) and dataset of experiment from K4B2, a measurement unit for pulmonary gas exchange with true breath-by-breath analysis. Such breath data will be acquired during subjects whom carry K4B2 walking on treadmill. By monitoring phone or wearable device data, two dataset will be combining together for a data model. In further, as long as IMU data gathered, then an estimation of oxygen consumption will calculated by phone based on previously data model. This is a quite novel method to estimated human┬┐s breath. None of such research paper was found in database.
