USE OF SIXTH SENSE TECHNOLOGY IN BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING

M.H.Siddiqui Department of biomedical engineering Dr.bhausaheb nandurkar college of engineering & technology Yavamal (MS) India sidhamed@gmail.com

Abstract: In the history of medical devices there are so many versions of a device that give high performance, more sensitive and compact in size and with high configuration, less time and space consumption as new features of it. This is the basic aim of a biomedical engineer to full fill the requirement of the need of the hour. For that I am proposing an idea which will full fill the requirement of the hour. Uses of sixth sense technology in biomedical engineering the hardware that makes Sixth Sense work is a pendant like mobile wearable interface, It has a camera, a mirror and a projector and is connected wirelessly to a Bluetooth or 3G or wifi smart phone that can slip comfortably into ones pocket, computer can also be attached for different works. The camera recognizes individuals, images, pictures, gestures one makes with their hands. Information is sent to the Smartphone or computer for processing. The downward-facing projector projects the output image on to the mirror. Mirror reflects image on to the

desired surface. Thus, digital information is free from its confines and placed in the physical world. This is what I want to say in the field of biomedical engineering where in operation theatre and at ICU, Xrays, CT Scan, MRI etc, we need some fast and faster process to which we can attain by use of this technology known as sixth sense technology. When we start using sixth sense technology in biomedical devices then we can have the ECG wave at our hand or at the front wall or on patients body also. In emergency case doctors need to diagnose the patients some factors like blood pressure ECG etc, very fast for that if he use old procedures needs lots of time to place an electrode and then taking the print of graph but by use of sixth sense technology we can produce continuously the wave form on wall also and doctor can diagnose very easily and quickly in few seconds.

Advantages of sixth sense technology in biomedical engineering

c)

It can be used for all of instrument to change the digital screen and can replace big computer. It can be used in operation theatre. Hence it can help by performing quickly to patient from death

a) Easy to operate can give high performance.


b) It can be used in cath lab also where there is huge or big space is needed for computer and screen.

d) e)

f)

It can be use in diagnosis the film of X-ray, CT Scan, MRI etc. The device is not so costly near about $350 (approximately RS 17,000/-). The device is wearable. . Easy to handle. Fast process can be performed. Space in control room will reduce.

are coupled in a pendant-like mobile wearable device. Both the projector and the camera are connected to the mobile computing device in the users pocket. How sixth sense technologies work? It simply needs four things to work as mentioned below A. Camera B. Projector C. Mirror D. Mobile Component E. Color Markers

INTRODUCTION

The developer of sixth sense technology is PRANAV MISTRY a student of PhD and research assistant in MIT media lab. The miniaturization of computing devices allows us to carry computers in our pockets, keeping us continually connected to the digital world; there is no link between our digital devices and our interactions with the physical world. Information is confined traditionally on paper or digitally on a screen. SixthSense bridges this gap, bringing intangible, digital information out into the tangible world, and allowing us to interact with this information via natural hand gestures. Sixth Sense frees information from its confines by seamlessly integrating it with reality, and thus making the entire world your computer. Sixth Sense in scientific (or non-scientific) terms is defined as Extra Sensory Perception or in short ESP. It involves the reception of information not gained through any of the five senses. Nor is it taken from any experiences from the past or known. Sixth Sense aims to more seamlessly integrate online information and tech into everyday life. By making available information needed for decision-making beyond what we have access to with our five senses, it effectively gives users a sixth sense. The SixthSense prototype is composed of a pocket projector, a mirror and a camera. The hardware components A. CAMERA A webcam captures and recognizes an object in view and tracks the users hand gestures using computer-vision based techniques. It sends the data to the smart phone. The camera, in a sense, acts as a digital eye, seeing what the user sees. It also

tracks the movements of the thumbs and index fingers of both of the user's hands. The camera recognizes objects around you instantly, with the micro-projector overlaying the information on any surface, including the object itself or your hand.

recognize gestures. The movements and arrangements of these makers are interpreted into gestures that act as interaction instructions for the projected application interfaces. 2. CO-ORDINATION OF FIVE THINGS MAKES

B. PROJECTOR Also, a projector opens up interaction and sharing. The project itself contains a battery inside, with 3 hours of battery life. The projector projects visual information enabling surfaces, walls and physical objects around us to be used as interfaces. We want this thing to merge with the physical world in a real physical sense. You are touching that object and projecting info onto that object. The information will look like it is part of the object. A tiny LED projector displays data sent from the smart phone on any surface in viewobject, wall, or person.
C. MIRROR

SIXTHSENSE

TECHNOLOGY

The usage of the mirror is significant as the projector dangles pointing downwards from the neck. D. MOBILE The mobile devices like Smartphone in our pockets transmit and receive voice and data anywhere and to anyone via the mobile internet. An accompanying Smartphone runs the Sixth Sense software, and handles the connection to the internet. A Web-enabled smart phone in the users pocket processes the video data. Other software searches the Web and interprets the hand gestures. E. COLOR MARKER It is at the tip of the users fingers. Marking the users fingers with red, yellow, green, and blue tape helps the webcam The hardware that makes Sixth Sense work is a pendant like mobile wearable interface It has a camera, a mirror and a projector and is connected wirelessly to a Bluetooth or 3G or wifi smart phone that can slip comfortably into ones pocket The camera recognizes individuals, images, pictures, gestures one makes with their hands Information is sent to the Smartphone for processing The downward-facing projector projects the output image on to the mirror Mirror reflects image on to the desired surface Thus, digital information is freed from its confines and placed in the physical world

The entire hardware apparatus is encompassed in a pendant-shaped mobile wearable device. Basically the

camera recognises individuals, images, pictures, gestures one makes with their hands and the projector assists in
projecting any information on whatever type of surface is present in front of the person. The usage of the mirror is significant as the projector dangles pointing downwards from the neck. To bring out variations on a much higher plane, in the demo video which was broadcasted to showcase the prototype to the world, Mistry uses coloured caps on his fingers so that it becomes simpler for the software to differentiate applications. The software program analyses the video data caught by the camera and also tracks down the locations of the coloured markers by utilising single computer vision techniques. One can have any number of hand gestures and movements as long as they are all reasonably identified and differentiated for the system to interpret it, preferably through unique and varied fiducially. This is possible only because the Sixth Sense device supports multi-touch and multi-user interaction. REFERENCES

various From this images we can have clear idea how this sixth sense can be useful and where and where we can apply this technology to make fast and fast process. The cost will not go beyond $350. In the field of biomedical technology if we start using this technology I can assured that better results can be came out and we can save more life of human being.
