Preparing for Sensor Fusion, a Revolution in Patient-Centric Health Delivery

Srihari Yamanoor (President, Designbly)

Sai Yamanoor (IoT R&D Applications Engineer , Praxair)

Location: 210A

Date: Wednesday, February 12

Time: 1:15pm - 2:00pm

Track: MD&M Conference: Driving Next-Gen Design & Innovation Strategies

Vault Recording: TBD

Sensor Fusion is a novel and elegant concept, arising out of the exploding diversity in sensors, data and artificial intelligence techniques. The applications for sensor fusion in healthcare delivery are almost endless. Patients can receive better care, cost-effective therapies and speedier recoveries, hospitals can be run efficiently, with reduced errors. Medical devices built for various applications will have a dual focus on health outcomes and will be a keystone of sensor fusion in healthcare. However, to realize the benefits, some challenges must be overcome. Medical devices come equipped with their own sensory systems, which inevitably results in a series of cacophonous silos and the data becomes barely usable. Duplication, fragmentation, errors and loss are more the norm than the solution. During this presentation, expert speakers will lay out the landscape of opportunities. Topics will include:

  • Opportunities where sensor fusion can usher in the new era in personal healthcare services
  • Looking at sensor fusion as the future for intelligent devices
  • How to overcome various design challenges
  • Strategies that will allow organizations to prepare for a future
