Smart Sensors for Health and Environment Monitoring by Chong-Min Kyung

By Chong-Min Kyung

This booklet covers most vital purposes of shrewdpermanent sensors, particularly bio-health sensing and environmental tracking. The process taken is holistic and covers the whole scope of the subject material from the rules of the sensing mechanism, via gadget physics, circuit and procedure implementation concepts, and effort matters to instant connectivity suggestions. it really is written at a degree appropriate more often than not for post-graduate point researchers drawn to sensible purposes. The chapters are autonomous yet complementary to one another, and the ebook works in the wider point of view of crucial clever sensors for the net of items (IoT).

This is the second one of 3 books in response to the built-in clever Sensors examine venture, which describe the advance of cutting edge units, circuits, and system-level allowing applied sciences. the purpose of the undertaking was once to enhance universal structures on which numerous units and sensors might be loaded, and to create platforms delivering major advancements in details processing velocity, power utilization, and measurement.

This ebook comprises tremendous reference lists and over a hundred and fifty figures, introducing the reader to the topic in an educational variety when additionally addressing cutting-edge examine effects, permitting it for use as a advisor for beginning researchers.

Kim et al. hand, the subjects who underwent enforced controlled caloric intake and light exercise in group C exhibited significant fat loss and their breath acetone approximately increased over 14 days. The results revealed that controlled caloric intake at the same time with light exercise stimulates fat loss, generating increased breath acetone concentration. In addition to breath acetone for the biomarker of fat burning, several components were identified as fat burning indicators from exhaled breath.

Recently, SMOs functionalized with graphene-based materials were proposed as an emerging exhaled breath sensing layers. Choi et al. proposed one dimensional (1D) structures of SMOs functionalized with graphene-based materials such as graphite (GR) and reduced graphene oxide (RGO) for application in potential diabetes diagnosis by detection of acetone (Fig. 5) [36, 37]. For example, 1D SnO2 nanofibers were prepared by electrospinning and mixed with GO followed by a thermal reduction process at 500 °C in forming gas (20 % H2/N2) ambient to form RGO [36].
