I present the idea and inspiration behind the selection of my Ph.D.Topic and elaborate the work done until now with a brief look at the future work. My aim is to enhance the functionality of humans, plants, and things by providing them with add-on low-cost standalone flexible systems capable of integration with IoT based systems to make everything smart. For each subcategory, I chose a research problem to potentially find solutions. For humans, I am working on a foil based acoustic sensor optimized to monitor wheezing by designing its diaphragm. Match filtering will then be used to differentiate between different wheezing sounds. For plants, I am developing a standalone flexible ultra-lightweight platform that monitors the microclimate along plants more accurately from the leaf instead of the soil. For things, I plan to install paper-based humidity and temperature sensors to monitor pill health. The challenge is to figure out an integration strategy for incorporating paper sensors in electronic systems as paper sensors are incompatible with soldering.
