Description of field of research

A smart mouthguard is being developer for a novel sleep apnoea application. The mouth guard will collect patient signals (Spo2, audio, 9-axis interial) intra-orally for a whole night. Due to the very constrained size of the oral cavity, battery size must be minimised and thus low power firmware design/techniques are critical.

Research Area

Low Power

Firmware based project primarily in C, working with an RTOS and Nordic nRF52 devices

  • Take existing codebase analyse it's power consumption.
  • Develop some low power techniques and apply them to the codebase
  • Measure the outcomes and results on power consumption
