Role in the NexGen Project

Siemens develops sensor and sensor electronic for dehydration monitoring. This sensor is part of the multiparameter on-body patch and based on microwave spectroscopy. Embedded signal processing for dehydration as well as a wireless interface for the sensor are also in focus.

A second part of Siemens research and development is multivariant signal processing to extract precise body parameters, even in case of variable environment conditions. These sophisticated data processing algorithms will be also adapted and applied for signal evaluation for the implantable glucose sensor.
