Abstract
Sensor networks are a field which benefits significantly from compressed sensing (CS), as, for instance, quality of service, or battery lifetime are directly improved by the subsequent reduction of traffic. Networks transmitting biomedical data, and within those, cardiac data, have particular advantages. ECG and PPG are the most studied 1D signals in the biomedical field, and where CS implementation has been more studied. One study scenario is using the sparsity of wavelet decomposition of these signals, and Iterative Shrinkage/Thresholding algorithms. Focus is given in accuracy and computation overhead, the most critical constraints of cardiac data processing. Networking implications are quantified, for different types of real network models, as well as the impact in signals quality, and on the extracted information (heart rate, oxygen saturation, pulse wave velocity).
