About Fail Safety in AA4R
“Fail Safety in Ambient Assistance for Recovery” (AA4R) is part of the Competence Center “Life Science Technologies” at Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH). AA4R is initiated by the TUHH Research Center SOMSED (Self-Organizing Wireless Sensor and Data Networks).
Our interdisciplinary team of TUHH researchers and medical partners investigates and develops advanced sensors in implants or placed on the body, fault-tolerant networks to the clinicians, and appropriate security mechanisms for closed-loop scenarios, and pursues their integration into new kinds of medical devices.
Goal is the provably fail-safe functioning of sensors, networks, and application software, even for rare faults or under adverse environments.
