Sleep Monitoring


Sleep is one of the most important daily activities. While we spend about one-third of our lives sleeping, our sleep is affected by many factors and can have levels of quality that change over time. One of the most prevalent diseases is OSA-Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Sleep quality is usually accessed by self-evaluation and questionnaires, and one is a poor observer of one’s sleep. Monitoring sleep, on the other hand, is very time-consuming and costly. This project seeks to develop cheap, automated solutions with low intrusion levels.
