Scope and Purpose

Because of the rapid advancement of radiofrequency, infrared, and optical technologies, many wireless sensing applications have emerged and enabled novel biomedical applications, such as diagnosis of diseases, telemedicine, implantable medical devices, characterization of biological materials, wireless neural prostheses, and remote-human-motion classification. Some of these applications entered human daily life shortly after their invention, significantly improving the productivity and life quality in our society. With solutions ranging from sensor-on-chip to bench top implementations, the driving forces behind these revolutions are largely based on circuits and systems tools, micro- and nano- fabrication processes, semiconductor technology, and embedded systems.
This Special Issue aims to highlight recently-emerging radiofrequency, infrared, and optical techniques that enable human-centered IoT based on wireless sensing and control of parameters including but not limited to: vital signs, temperature, activity data, location, gesture, and gait information. Applications should directly interact with animals, human subjects, or biological materials. The achievements made by both industrial and academic researchers will be featured. Promising applications in high-impact areas, such as telemedicine, human tracking, biometrics, wireless neural interface, and human machine-interface will be presented.
