Smart Villages: When Affordable Electronics Meets Internet for All

The role of Internet and Communication Technology (ICT) in bringing about a revolution in almost all aspects of human life needs no introduction. It is indeed a well-known fact that the transmission of information at a rapid pace has transformed all spheres of human life such as education, health, and economy to name a few. In addition, with the advent in Electronics and Photonics Technology (EPT), we have observed sustained growth and expansion
in computation and display technology. From user demography perspective, urbanized population are the major beneficiary of such advances. Therefore, the benefits of ICT and EPT are yet to be experienced by almost 4 billion people in the world who are still “unconnected or under-connected” and suffer as such from the “digital divide,” a term coined in order to emphasize the lack of ICT infrastructure in many parts of the world. Major challenges for widespread adoption of ICT and EPT in these areas are related to cost, lack of power supply, and complexities associated with learning and usage. However, if we can categorically overcome these challenges, then these technologies can be used for food, water, shelter, energy, environment, education, healthcare, and security. In addition, the wide-spread availability of these technologies, will lead to smart suburbs, smart towns, smart villages, etc., without the need to necessarily live in smart cities. This would reverse the trend and allow a more sustainable world with a more balanced distribution of the population density.In this context, this talk will introduce recently proposed solutions to provide high speed connectivity in rural areas along progress in affordable electronics to serve and contribute to the development of far-flung regions.In particular, new solutions for both: (i) integrated satellite-airborne- ground networks providing global coverage and connectivity and (ii) terrestrial mesh/multi-hop directive networks connecting underserved areas will be discussed. Moreover, some examples of democratized wearable electronics using Do-It-Yourself (DIY) assembly of paper along Android DIY applications capturing and displaying vital health signs over connected smartphones for real-time diagnosis will be presented.
Development of fractional-order CMOS analog integrated circuits for interdisciplinary applications
Electronics Laboratory, Physics Department, University of Patras, 26504 Rio Patras, GR, Greece
Fractional calculus, as generalization of integer-order calculus to its fractional-order, has demonstrated to be a valuable tool in the modeling of many applications in physics, electronic circuits, biomaterials, and electrochemistry. Recently, there has been an increasing need to merge the fundamentals of fractional calculus into many engineering applications in an interdisciplinary way showing the advantages of fractional-order relative to conventional integer-order systems.
For example, the capability of step less control of the slope of frequency characteristics in fractional-order filters in comparison with the corresponding integer-order filters is an attractive feature. Fractional-order impedance circuits are also very promising in modeling electrical properties of biological materials, tissues or cells. Oscillators of fractional-order provide possibility of obtaining higher oscillation frequencies compared to the integer-order counterparts with the same values of passive element parameters offering arbitrary phase shift between output signals.
This speech deals with the design and realization of CMOS analog integrated fractional-order circuits, which offer the benefits: (i) capability of on-chip implementation, (ii) capability of low-voltage operation, and (iii) electronic adjustment of their characteristics.
The demonstrated applications include fractional-order systems suitable for biomedical signal processing, for neuromorphic applications, for modeling biological tissues, for realizing fractional-order PID controllers etc.

Over the past few years, considerable effort has been observed in the bio-impedance research area and its applications in medicine and biology. Bio-impedance is a branch of the more general Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS). A great amount of research has been directed towards reducing the cost and size of the hardware equipment and/or reducing the time of measurement. As well, a large amount of work has been done in exploring the effectiveness of bio-imepdance as a non-invasive measurement technique in various applications to offer a fast yet accurate diagnostic indicator.
In this talk, the basic princinples of bio-impedance are recalled followed by examples of documented applications in different fields. Focus is put on the instrumentation of impedance measurement and particularly newly developed techniques more suited for fast in-the-field applications inclduing new time-domain and phase-domain measurement techniques. Available single-chip solutions and architectures for impedance measurements will also be surveyed.
