Type: Bachelor Thesis (BSc, MSc)
Objective / Ziel
The overall goal of this work is to develop a software system for the extraction of movement, heart and breathing signals out of recording, obtained with the use of pressure sensors. Signal acquisition is not a part of the work.
Description / Beschreibung
Sleep study is nowadays an actual research topic worldwide. Although a sleep study itself is a medical matter, hardware and software components are unavoidable for its performing. Ubiquitous Computing Laboratory possesses a wide experience in this area of knowledge.
The aim of this work is to develop a software system to extract movement, breath and heart beat signals out of mixed-recording containing these three signals (see Fig. 1).
Detailed work definition will be determined together with the student based on her/his background and experiences. The developed system will be used for the further research work of the laboratory.
Task / Aufgabe
- Extract movement, breathing and heart signals out of available recordings, store the results in a database
- Visualize the extracted signals on separate graphs
- Find peaks of single breaths and heartbeats
- Calculate the breathing and heart rates for every 30-seconds epoch of the recording
