Development of Animal Watch Sensor System for Human Health and Food Safety

Research Project Outline

We develop wireless sensor nodes and networks for animal healthcare that contribute to human health and food safety. The "Animal Watch Sensors" which are miniaturized, light, flexible as well as self-sufficient sensor nodes are realized by developing ultra low power MEMS sensors and film-based microsystem integration and packaging technologies. As one of the important applications, we utilize the sensor nodes and networks for a global avian influenza surveillance system, which is necessary to defend human beings from an influenza pandemic.
