The SmartCough project

The goal of this project was to expand the capabilities of telemedicine in the context of respiratory illness. To this end, we developed advanced signal processing and pattern recognition techniques to achieve continuous real-time automatic detection of cough episodes. A smartphone application featuring these functionalities is available for patient monitoring. SmartCough engineers have achieved advanced power management for intense computing using smartphones, as well as high-quality sound processing with robust detection of audio-cough events.
