Open Source Medical Accessories - Philip Verbist, XsOnline & Rocky De Wiest, Belgian Defence
It all started with a seafarer fainting at full sea. He felt fine afterwards, but his heartrate had dropped to only 35 bpm. In this situation, the only thing a captain can do for the seafarer is to call a doctor and explain his problem over the phone or via email… If you’ve tried fixing a technical issue over the phone before, try this.

On the one hand, rescueing a seafarer from a ship mid-sea is very expensive, but not rescueing him might be even more expensive. On the other hand, the doctor at shore needs more information to be able to save the seafarer.
What if we could send a "stack trace" to the doctor?

In this presentation Rocky de Wiest and Philip Verbist will discuss the current (technical) state of their project regarding global medical advice, and look forward to the future of open source software in healthcare.

Leveraging Open-Source Power Measurement Standard Solution - Patrick Titiano
A major issue the community faces is the lack of power measurement (PM) instrumentation, coupled with poor integration: development boards not designed for it, expensive high-precision lab equipment not accessible to hobbyists (plus limited Linux support), limited low-cost solutions (precision, sampling rate) to monitor high-performance SoC (System On Chips) platforms (e.g. smartphones, tablets, IoT, …). After a brief introduction to the problematic (PM techniques, sense resistor / ADC selection, ...) and a comparative study of existing solutions, this presentation will focus on a new upcoming initiative to close these gaps and bring a full-blown multi-channel but low-cost power (and temperature) measurement equipment to the community, including the definition of an open standard PM connector. After having covered motivations, challenges, key decisions, a live demo will close the talk.
