  • NC State to Lead NSF Nanosystems Engineering Research Center on Self-Powered Health Monitoring - Newsroom - Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
    developed by ASSIST means that changing and recharging batteries on current devices could soon be a thing of the past By using nanomaterials and nanostructures a nanowire is thousands of times thinner than a human hair and thermoelectric and piezoelectric materials that use body heat and motion respectively as power sources ASSIST researchers want to make devices that operate on the smallest amounts of energy Dr Veena Misra and Dr John Muth provide leadership for ASSIST Currently there are many devices out there that monitor health in different ways said Dr Veena Misra the center s director and professor of electrical and computer engineering at NC State What s unique about our technologies is the fact that they are powered by the human body so they don t require battery charging These devices could transform health care by improving the way doctors patients and researchers gather and interpret important health data Armed with uninterrupted streams of heart rate readings respiration rates and other health indicators as well as personalized exposure data for environmental pollutants such as ozone and carbon monoxide sick people could better manage chronic diseases and healthy people could make even better decisions to keep themselves fit On a larger scale data gleaned from research studies employing these devices could prove invaluable to lawmakers crafting environmental policy And if people using the devices make better decisions about where and how healthfully they live national health care costs which topped 2 5 trillion in 2010 could come down The center s headquarters will be housed in the Larry K Monteith Engineering Research Center on NC State s Centennial Campus There ASSIST researchers will develop thermoelectric materials that harvest body heat and new nanosensors that gather health information from the body such as heart rates oxygen levels and respiration data In addition the researchers will find ways to package the technology developed by the center into wearable devices The center s partner institutions will also play important research roles At Penn State researchers will create new piezoelectric materials and energy efficient transistors The team from the University of Virginia will develop ways to make the systems work on very small amounts of power while the group from Florida International University will create sensors that gather biochemical signals from the body such as stress levels The results of that work coupled with low power radios developed by the University of Michigan will be used to process and transmit health data gathered by the sensors to computers and consumer devices such as cell phones so patients doctors and researchers can easily digest it The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will provide ASSIST with medical guidance and arrange testing of the center s technology ASSIST aims to produce self powered health monitoring devices some of which could be worn on the wrist We have assembled a comprehensive team that works together closely under a systems driven approach to tackle this challenging set of global health problems Misra said ASSIST also has

  • A world away, but right at home - Newsroom - Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
    all of us here in Istanbul The Civanlars have followed a fascinating path from Turkey to Raleigh and back They met in the 1970s while studying at Middle East Technical University in Ankara The couple later married and earned their undergraduate and master s degrees NC State became part of their lives in 1981 when they both received Fulbright Scholarships to pursue their PhDs in the United States They came to NC State with their infant son and lived in King Village Once in Raleigh they focused on their electrical engineering studies Reha was interested in digital communications and signal processing Seyhan studied electric power distribution systems But life at NC State wasn t easy The couple had a small child and two research loads to carry What helped was the kindness shown to them by other students and faculty Graduate students loaned us TVs chairs and sofas Seyhan said Everybody was so nice and accommodating Professors would invite us to Christmas parties and Thanksgiving dinners We never felt alone in Raleigh We felt right at home They remained at NC State after graduation Reha as a postdoctoral researcher and Seyhan as an assistant professor She was the first foreign born graduate of NC State to become a faculty member at the university A short time later the couple moved to New Jersey for jobs with AT T research labs and that s when their careers really took off Reha found a niche working on the development of hi definition television and Internet video he later became the head of the visual communications research department at AT T Research and received about 50 patents in the field A landmark came in 1994 when at an international conference his group demonstrated the first high quality intercontinental video streamed live online On one side was us and on the other side was Japan he said We showed it was possible to move digital TV quality video over the Internet Seyhan also excelled performing pioneering work in electric feeders and systems In the mid 1990s she led the group charged with building AT T s Internet services She later used that experience to found and lead Lemur Networks raising about 6 5 million for the Internet protocol startup Anxious for new challenges the last 10 years have seen the Civanlars traveling the world supporting each other In 2002 they moved back to Turkey so Reha could teach computer engineering at Koc University in Istanbul and Seyhan could focus on startups in her home country Then the couple moved to Palo Alto Calif so Reha could serve as vice president for research at a Japanese multimedia company Seyhan meanwhile worked on starting a US subsidiary of a Turkish software company in Silicon Valley In 2008 Reha was offered an opportunity to return to Turkey and become the founding dean of the new engineering school at Ozyegin University in Istanbul His job Build a new engineering program from scratch When I started at Ozyegin it
