ECG Monitoring in an Airplane Seat: Appraising the Signal Quality
Found in: IEEE Pervasive Computing
By Johannes Schumm,Bert Arnrich,Gerhard Tröster
Issue Date:October 2012
pp. 28-34
A contactless electrocardiogram (ECG) system in an airplane seat aims to monitor the well-being of passengers afraid to fly, but passenger movements can disturb the signal. The authors discuss how passenger activity influences ECG signals and present a nov...
 
A Data-Driven Approach to Kinematic Analysis in Running Using Wearable Technology
Found in: Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks, International Workshop on
By Christina Strohrmann,Mirco Rossi,Bert Arnrich,Gerhard Tröster
Issue Date:May 2012
pp. 118-123
Millions of people run. Movement scientists investigate the relationship of running kinematics to fatigue, injury, or running economy mainly using optical motion capture. It was found that running kinematics are highly individual and often cannot be summar...
 
Detecting Posture Mirroring in Social Interactions with Wearable Sensors
Found in: Wearable Computers, IEEE International Symposium
By Sebastian Feese, Bert Arnrich, Gerhard Tröster, Bertolt Meyer, Klaus Jonas
Issue Date:June 2011
pp. 119-120
We envision wearable social-behavioral assistants which measure the nonverbal behavior of their users during social interaction. Research in psychology has linked posture mirroring, a key element of nonverbal behavior, to rapport and empathy and has been f...
 
Towards an Interactive Snowboarding Assistance System
Found in: Wearable Computers, IEEE International Symposium
By Thomas Holleczek, Christoph Zysset, Bert Arnrich, Daniel Roggen, Gerhard Tröster
Issue Date:September 2009
pp. 147-148
Snowboarding is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. However, it is rather difficult to learn. Snowboarders, who have reached an average level of expertise, often find it difficult to improve their style without taking expensive private lessons....
 
Gabor Filters for Object Localization and Robot Grasping
Found in: Pattern Recognition, International Conference on
By Jörg Walter, Bert Arnrich
Issue Date:September 2000
pp. 4124
We present a system for learning the three DOF fine-positioning task of a robot manipulator (Puma 260) using a gripper mounted camera. Small lateral gripper-target misalignments are corrected in one step. Larger ones employ a previous coarse adjustment mov...
 
Activity monitoring in daily life as an outcome measure for surgical pain relief intervention using smartphones
Found in: Proceedings of the 17th annual international symposium on International symposium on wearable computers (ISWC '13)
By Bert Arnrich, Gerhard Tröster, Julia Seiter, Konrad Maurer, Lucian Macrea, Oliver Amft, Sebastian Feese
Issue Date:September 2013
pp. 127-128
We investigate the potential of a smartphone to measure a patient's change in physical activity before and after a surgical pain relief intervention. We show feasibility for our smartphone system providing physical activity from acceleration, barometer and...
     
Sensing group proximity dynamics of firefighting teams using smartphones
Found in: Proceedings of the 17th annual international symposium on International symposium on wearable computers (ISWC '13)
By Bert Arnrich, Bertolt Meyer, Gerhard Tröster, Klaus Jonas, Michael Burtscher, Sebastian Feese
Issue Date:September 2013
pp. 97-104
Firefighters work in dangerous and unfamiliar situations under a high degree of time pressure and thus team work is of utmost importance. Relying on trained automatisms, firefighters coordinate their actions implicitly by observing the actions of their tea...
     
CoenoFire: monitoring performance indicators of firefighters in real-world missions using smartphones
Found in: Proceedings of the 2013 ACM international joint conference on Pervasive and ubiquitous computing (UbiComp '13)
By Bert Arnrich, Bertolt Meyer, Gerhard Troster, Klaus Jonas, Michael Burtscher, Sebastian Feese
Issue Date:September 2013
pp. 83-92
Firefighting is a dangerous task and many research projects have aimed at supporting firefighters during missions by developing new and often costly equipment. In contrast to previous approaches, we use the smartphone to monitor firefighters during real-wo...
     
UbiHealth 2010: the 5th international workshop on ubiquitous health and wellness
Found in: Proceedings of the 12th ACM international conference adjunct papers on Ubiquitous computing - Adjunct (Ubicomp '10 Adjunct)
By Bert Arnrich, Giuseppe Riva, Jakob Bardram, Venet Osmani
Issue Date:September 2010
pp. 497-500
This workshop continues the series of UbiHealth work-shops organized at the Ubicomp conferences. So far, the majority of work presented in earlier workshops and in the field of ubiquitous healthcare has focused on supporting people affected by somatic dise...
