Thank You Rich, Design News and Digi-Key.

Iron

Another good session. Thanks Charles.

Iron

Got the slides... And away we go!

Iron

Catching up on some courses.

Iron

Hello from Beaverton, Oregon.

Iron

hello all from Edmonton, Alberta

Iron

very clear presentation

Iron

a well informative with respect to all devices and protocol in details and would like to thank sir charles for the presentation...

please apologize, i am referring to sir charles for this presentation...

thanks and happy weekend to all...

i am about to end the presentation of sir jack with slide 19 now...

GREAT, this is another learning to be learned for medical devices unto automation...thanks for that..

i am now at slide 7 for the topic

now i am starting with the slide 2

i am going to download first the material as a key for the discussion...

good evening to all!

these are what i have missed last session because of conflict schedules i have...

now, i will go through it to finish...

Thank you for Great lecture!

I agree with comment about IoT being pushed by silicon vendors.

Use to work on medical devices. 

Thank you everybody!!  Very great day!!  

Charles you have been informative as always. I have got to get back to work. See you tomorrow :)

Iron

Thanks all - see you tomorrow at the same time!

Iron

Any other quastions for today? my coffee cup and pot are empty and time to make some more

 

Iron

This is getting good :D

Iron

Hey Rich, Mr Lord needs to do a full week on "cloud" solutions!

 

Iron

Tell Rich that!

 

Iron

Ok, then maybe "cloud" can have another full week class! 

 

Iron

Friday will touch on the cloud, but more to the individual server - which can be physical or a virtual server in the cloud

Iron

Have I missed a question? A LOT of great comments and feedback about what many of you are working in - I recommend that all of you read back through these

 

Iron

Is Part 2 going to focus on the "Cloud" side?

Most marketing guys are focused on cloud side now (due to market hype, amazon etc) and want to aggregate data etc etc.

 

Iron

jcline - point well taken.  My opinion is that the only thing that will drive ZigBee home automation is smartgrid.  And the jury is still out (and I WORK in it...)

 

Iron

Thanks again.  I'll look it up.

Iron

Doug Cook - It was a 802.15.4 wireless device in a star topology.

 

Iron

I dont see much zigbee in home automation market, only z-wave.  but telehealth I see no mention of zwave.

Iron

Great point re POTS being lowest common denominator. True, many do not have Internet or cell connectivity.

And Simon, I applaud your effort to get the health benefits of red wine, although I think the studies said *ONE* glass each evening...

Iron

Thank you for the excellent presentation Charles.  Were your energy-harvesting apps. wireless?  What technology did you use?

Iron

I will talk about the aggregate manager tomorrow - the standard covers the handshaking and comms but not so much what the unit does outside being a router and store-and-forward as such.  If I don't answer this enough in tomorrow's slides let me know and we will cover deeper

ANT+ can be used - just isn't supported in 11073 like Zigbee BUT you can make it work as long as it provides the elements required in ZigBee HC and in 11073 comms

 

Iron

Will there be further details in the applicable standards for the Aggregate or Manager?

Iron

Amansano - I have worked in just what you ask - energy harvested or passive transponder RFID.  I have put sensors buried in areas for years, running off of vibration.  Once we have a working path (OSI layers 1-4) we can add the protocol!

Iron

Thank you Charles.

Iron

Digital Angel and jcline - you two make this chat a pleasure!

The House, MD quote is SPOT-ON.  And yes, I think the tablet point is true. 

jcline, like Rich, I would like to talk later about IoT and whether it is market or silicon mfr driven.  You hear more from (wait for it) - the semis.

Iron

Charles, suppose there is a need for wireless sensors powered by wireless energy harvesting (battery-less). These devices would not be able to power BT/LE communication. Thus, new standards/technologies of communication should be developed. How would the medical market see this new standard/technology? How can this new technology enter this conservative market?

Thanks again 

Iron

Thank you and see/hear you tomorrow!

Iron

HA HA Alaska - POTS and PANS.  Hadn't heard that last part in a number of years!

Digital Angel - you make valid points on the references! I have them and will type them in before tomorrow's talk, OK?

Iron

Thank you all.  Well done & obviously well structured presentation - covered in outline  a LOT of highly pertinent topics, with some to be touched on in more depth tomorrow.  Wel done.  TOmHalEE, Buffalo, NY, USA.  See you tomorrow.

Iron

Thanks Charles.  I agree, its worth the extra time.

Iron

POTS and PANS: Telephony for Plain Old Telephone and Pretty Amazing New Stuff

Nice presentation - almost 50 minutes still seemed like 20 min, lots of interesting information to cover.

Great Slides, both format and content ... hoping a good setup for communications day 2 ...

Would like to have references to statistics posted in regard to medical issues as stated earlier

IOT really requires IPV6 and look how many people are adopting that (still.. after so many years.. waiting)

Iron

Thanks.  Well worth the extra time.

Iron

thank you Charles!

 

Iron

Thanks Charles for presentation.

Iron

Thank you Charles, very useful information.

Who's going to pay for all these neat toys ?

Iron

Thanks very much Charles excellent!

Iron

Great class! Thanks Charles.

wireless communication between medical device and the aggregation base...

Iron

* Tablet as a digital clip board ... nurses may like it, for at home folks, another widget to buy - have

   to have real value added to justify / make salient - also, rapid change may be a limiter, don't want

   to purchase new device every year, become obsolete due to new device standard etc ... --

    as Dr. Wilson / Dr. House dialogue:

           Dr. Wilson: Did you know your phone is dead? Do you ever recharge the batteries?
           Dr. House: They recharge? I just keep buying new phones.

* Bad/wrong information communications is like CNN -  the ch 22 folks

* Mixed message communications is like NBC -- the ch 38 specials

Charles, thank you for today's lecture

Iron

Where does ANT+ fit in?

 

Iron

BT 4.0 BLE (low power, good range, etc...)

IOT is hot only because silicon vendors are pushing it, since they want to sell more 32-bit SOCs.

POTS= plain old telephone  service

Iron

There may be some changes after smart metering with WIFI support is further along, the WIFI portion will be no charge.

POTS = Plain Old Telephone Service

Iron

One problem with tablets is that they are hard to hold and not drop them.  I have seen some holders online that look like they would be more ergonomic, not to advertise any specific one, but this one looks interesting http://www.handeholder.com/  There are many others in a search for "iPad holder."

Gold

POTS: Regular phone right?

Iron

Hey all, we're developing a dashboard for home health/home care devices to be used by the hospitals' home care nurses and doctors. It's a single dashboard that integrates the data streams of all connected devices. Please, if you own a device, get in touch with us (f.burg2@gmx.de), and we will try to add your device type to our dashboard. Your support is highly appreciated. Thanks!

Iron

Although it seems the ideal interface for our Aggregate (data collector), I have seen some pushback to the use of tablets from users? Is anyone else designing with tablets as collection devices for home healthcare? Android or iPad?

Blogger

does not have to be a tablet or a smartphone... just a dedicated medical device with a cellular interface (e.g. a M2M LTE)

Iron

Replacing tablets with iPhone and the like. 

Iron

good afternoon, everyone

Iron

POTS is still very important since many people do not have internet in their home.

Iron

There is some very interesting work being done at USC in Los Angeles on the use of robots to assit people who have suffered a stroke, that helps them to motivate patients to exercise parts of the body that need reabilitation. Such work imply the robots talking with the patient and reminding them about some of the work that they need to do. For instance the robot ask the patient to lift something with the left hand to reactivate that neural connections in that part of the body and not only rely on the movil part of the body. In some instances they have sensors that avoid the possibility of cheating

no wonder health care costs are going to drop by 25 percent and Obamacare will consider dropping the Medical Device TAX .. ... just wishful thinking ...

I'd be interested to know how these statistics break down into age groups

 

Iron

with 50% confidence interval?

thanks for citing NEJM as an example ... would prefer slides to say ...

according to the new england journal of medicine (or CDC, or trade study etc ... ) ....

thanks --- AND ... thanks for an early presentation of the issues and rationale and prevention as a key area

HTML5 audio working fine on a webkit-based mac browser (~safari)

dhuang218, What background music?

Gold

Hello from San Antonio,

 

Iron

@dhuang218 - is there a background music? (it's just Charles speaking)

Iron

Audio is nice and clear on IE

Iron

audio cutting off

 

Iron

Audio is up and running here on firefox again

Iron

background music is a little loud.

Hi Rich, @DavidCulp - not sure what the comment is here either.  I was on answering questions until after 3PM EDT - there were very few questions, a lot of great comments.  If I missed one, please repeat it today.  Thanks!

Iron

Good day all - and it is a beautiful day in the Land of the Sky, Asheville, NC!  I look forward to our class today!

Iron

The Aurora Borealis is aboard :-)

@DavidCulp: all questions should be answered in this public forum. If Charles has missed a question, I'm sure it's just an oversight. Can you point me to a question that was asked and not answered? Thanks.
