Mechanical Imaging of Soft Tissues with Miniature Climbing robots
We propose a method that uses our previously developed skin-crawling robots to noninvasively test the mechanical properties of soft tissue. We explore the use of two miniature sensors: an indenter and a cutometer. We evaluate the sensor's performance from data collected on simulated tissue, classifying the depth and size of a simulated lump with over 98.8% accuracy using convolutional neural nets. Finally, we do limited on-body testing to map dry skin on the forearm with a cutometer. We hope to improve the ability to test tissues noninvasively, providing better sensitivity and systematic data collection... Read more
Side-Channel Sensing: Exploiting Side-Channels to Extract Information for Medical Diagnostics and Monitoring
Abstract Information within systems can be extracted through side-channels; unintended communication channels that leak information. The concept of side-channel sensing is explored, in which sensor data is analysed in non-trivial ways to recover subtle, hidden or unexpected information. Practical examples... Read more

Unobtrusive Monitoring of Neonatal Brain Temperature Using a Zero-Heat-Flux Sensor Matrix
The temperature of preterm neonates must be maintained within a narrow window to ensure their survival. Continuously measuring their core temperature provides an optimal means of monitoring their thermoregulation and their response to environmental changes. However, existing methods of measuring...
