The goal of this course is to make students aware of the growing importance of MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems), the MOEMS (Micro Opto Electro Mechanical Systems) of WISN and bio-micro systems the industrial world, in everyday life and in the biomedical world.
The lecture is composed of three parts : Part I: MEMS
Part II: Introduction to Biosystems
Part III: Introduction to Wireless Sensor Network and main applications in healthcare.
Practical work: The practical work consists in the design of a MEMS sensor with Coventor software. The sensor is micromechanial element (microcantilever) vibrating inside a blood sample. The damping caused by the liquid is measured by a strain gauge and provides information of the blood viscosity. This type of integrable sensor enables the possibility to fabricate low cost point of care diagnosis. The students use the possibility of the software such as the finite elements modelling and predefined models taken from a library of parametrable elements. It enables to check the good behavior of the sensor, predict its sensitivity and to optimize it.
