Project Details


Cyber-Biomedical Systems Curriculum (ASUF 30006199) Cyber-Biomedical Systems This class will train Biomedical Engineering students in the engineering principles involved in the development of embedded systems for biomedical and healthcare applications. As embedded computing becomes more common in healthcare in the form of devices involved in prostheses, diagnosis, monitoring and therapy in clinical, home, hand-held or on-body settings it is increasingly critical to understand how to design and develop robust and reliable embedded systems while preserving optimality in power, performance and form factors. This class will cover engineering principles involved in the modeling, design and analysis of hybrid systems that involve embedded computers controlling and interacting with biomedical systems. The Intel Atom processor will be used as an exemplary platform for the development of such cyber-biomedical systems. The lab component of this class will involve structured exercises and a final 6-week student design project on a bioengineering problem of the students choice. Homeworks, lab projects, in-class worked examples and case-studies will focus on traditional and emerging cyber-biomedical systems such as brain-machine interfaces, humanoid and surgical robots, drug delivery, prosthetic, diagnostic and monitoring (clinical, home and tele-health) systems. Models of Cyber- Biomedical systems will involve static and dynamic models of the biomedical systems and computational systems including formalism of state machines. Design of embedded systems will include discussion on the processor architecture and its implication for programmers, memory architecture and its implication for program timing and input-output mechanisms of the embedded system that allows the largely sequential cyber world to interact with a concurrent biomedical world.
