About ERATO Maenaka Human-Sensing Fusion Project
The declining birthrate, the graying of society, the increasing incidence of so-called “lifestyle diseases”: these and other problems have stimulated greater interest in issues of safety, welfare and health care. We would like to avoid dying alone, or dying from overwork, fatal injury or simply neglecting our health. It would help if we could use wearable sensors to monitor our physical condition and our immediate environment and, when necessary, summon help automatically. Now, finally, such a system is possible.
In this research program sponsored by JST (Japan Science and Technology Agency), with the collaboration of the Electronic Circuits Research Group of University of Hyogo, the ERATO (Exploratory Research for Advanced Technology) program’s. Maenaka Human-Sensing Fusion Project team aims to develop a body monitoring system to support human health and safety. The system will integrate wireless communication devices, power generation devices, and sensors which can detect vital parameters such as blood pressure and pulse or sphygmogram and physical parameters resulting from human movement and the surrounding circumstances.
