Wearable Gas And Physiological Sensors: GE's Approach For Boosting Sensor Reliability (Sensors USA 2019)

Dr Radislav Potyrailo, Principal Scientist-Micro & Optoelectronics
GE Global Research
United States
 

Presentation Summary

Modern monitoring scenarios for industrial safety, medical diagnostics, and other applications demand sensing with higher reliability that include accuracy, stability, and other performance parameters. In our talk, we will (1) analyze requirements for wearable gas and physiological sensors for personal gas exposures and health monitoring, and then map these requirements onto emerging applications in medical, consumer, industrial, and military areas; (2) discuss the state-of-the-art wearable sensors and highlight common themes of needed improvements; and (3) demonstrate our recent results focusing on the identified needs.
