RICHMOND — University of Virginia researchers are working to create small, wearable, self-powered monitors that can be linked to sensors on the body and that send alerts when things are amiss.
Researcher John Lach, a professor and chairman of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is leading the research at UVa, which is part of a larger National Science Foundation-supported collaborative called ASSIST, based at North Carolina State University. ASSIST stands for Advanced Self-Powered Systems of Integrated Sensors and Technologies.
