x-heep – designing healthcare devices of the future

biomedical, health, internetofthings, research

The advancement of continuous healthcare monitoring depends on the development of new and more efficient ultra-low power wearable platforms as well as new algorithms. However, the teams that develop the algorithms are usually not the same as those that design the platforms, thus, optimization opportunities are often lost in the way. Not less importantly, the (…)
