Wearable devices with physiological and environmental sensors. Development of hardware and low-level firmware.

[Closed]

Work description

The new European project of which INESC TEC is part (FIRE-RES) will allow the improvement and development of innovative solutions for monitoring firefighters. This work aims to develop wearable devices and specific sensors for use in firefighting as well as test them on the field and integrate them into a more comprehensive monitoring system under the FIRE-RES project. After the development phase a production of these devices will be prepared and made to perform a larger scale pilot.

Academic Qualifications

Master's degree in embedded systems engineering, electrical and computer engineering, biomedical, or other similar areas.

Minimum profile required

Prior knowledge in hardware design (Altium, Eagle,...) and experience in analog and digital electronics. Proven low-level firmware development on Microcontrollers and sensor integration.

Preference factors

Familiarity with Altium CAD software and IDEs from Microchip and Silicon Labs. Good knowledge of biomedical and environmental signals and sensors. Knowledge of wearable devices with textile integration.
