Cyber-Physical Systems for Medical Data Collection and Analysis

Technology advances are creating major shifts in the industrial landscape. Traditional sectors such as transportation, medical and avionics, are witnessing fundamental changes in the supply chain and in the content where the interactions between the physical world and the computing world are becoming increasingly tight. Cyber Physical Systems, Systems of Systems, Internet of Things, Industrie 4.0, Swarm Systems and The Fog are all sectors that attract massive attention from the research communities and massive investment from industry. These concepts are tightly intertwined and describe a movement towards a fully interconnected planet where billions of devices interact via a complex mesh of wireless and wired communication infrastructures. The most compelling vision for the future of technology and industry is one where a swarm of devices is connected with the cloud to provide platforms for myriad of new applications. Among these applications, health devices and services take center stage for their social and economic implications. Precision medicine implies the conception and design of cyber-physical systems that combine physical sensors and actuators with sophisticated computing. Some of these devices such as brain-machine interface devices and an integrated disposable ECG will be reviewed and the future of the swarm technologies for health applications presented.
