The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering Science invites you to a research presentation entitled: “Textile-based Deformation and Flexion Sensors for Biomedical Applications” by Professor Nicola Carbonaro.

Abstract: The development of innovative systems capable of improving people’s health and aging is essential for prevention and early diagnosis. Wearable textile sensors are innovative solutions that allow the incorporation of sensors into traditional garments with a low impact on users’ lives thanks to maximum wearability and adaptability. In this talk we will investigate the operating principle and the realization of textile sensors useful for analyzing and studying the activities and “behaviors” of a large number of people. In addition, the main applications are reported to highlight the ability of these sensors to improve the quality of life of the subjects, such us to analyze disease trends or to monitor walking over the long term.

ShortBio: Nicola Carbonaro is an Assistant Professor of Bioengineering at the Information Engineering Department and at the Research Center “E. Piaggio”, University of Pisa. Since 2018 he is the reference professor of “Natural and Artificial Senses” course of the Degree course in Biomedical Engineering of the University of Pisa. His research is mainly focused on hardware and software development for wearable sensing technology for physiological and behavioral human monitoring for biomedical applications. Dr. Carbonaro has collaborated on different research projects both at National and European levels. He has published many journal papers and has made contributions to international conferences and books’ chapters.
