ECEN students publish research in IEEE conference publicationPublished Jun 01, 2015
Eight undergraduate students from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Program at Texas A&M University at Qatar conducted cutting-edge research during their senior design project in 2015 and presented their work in an IEEE conference paper at the Second International Symposium on Future Information and Communication Technologies for Ubiquitous HealthCare (Ubi-HealthTech) 2015.
In this paper the students presented a noninvasive electro-encephalograph (ECG) monitoring system based on visible light communication. An ECG kit is connected to ardueno board, which uses a wifi shield to transmit the ECG signal wirelessly to computer. A prototype of visible light communication (VLC) link is used to transmit the ECG signal. The received ECG signal over VLC link is compared with the transmitted ECG signal and error is calculated.
