AcoustoSleepMask: Development of smart sleep mask using acoustic biomarker and machine learning

Research Overview

The purpose of this research is to collect respiratory sound including snoring among biological sounds generated during sleep, to be used for the development of a personalized sleep management device for the management of routine sleep in everyday life.

The research will include an analysis of sound information generated during sleep, selection of acoustic biomarker, development of a medical algorithm of a new concept based on the acoustic marker which can measure the non-invasive sleep status, development of a smart sleep mask through fusion research, and evaluation of the accuracy and efficacy of these methods using the results of sleep polyvalence test and sleep apnea test as well as a clinical trial and pilot application.

In addition, the goal of this research includes development of a smart sleep mask to a higher level, to be used for the development of various sleep-related health management scenarios using this smart sleep mask and trial application.
