Rahul Krishnan P. P. currently serves as a Project Associate at the Amrita Center for Wireless Networks & Applications (Amrita WNA), Amritapuri Campus. He has more than four years experience in different research labs. His focus area has been on designing and developing mobile visualization systems, communication and networking protocols in the area of wireless healthcare systems. He has contributed towards the development of the wireless ECG system developed at AmritaWNA, called Amrita- Spandanam, which is currently being tested at hospitals. He has also worked on the design, development and testing of next-generation remote classroom technologies under a funded project from National Knowledge Network (NKN). Prior to this he has worked with the networks research lab at UC Davis with Dr. Prasant Mohapatra, on network characterization of high bandwidth streaming data on mobile phones. He has also worked on Android applications for building visualization for post-earthquake scenario at HIT Lab, New Zealand with Dr. Mark Billinghurst. He is currently pursuing PhD in wireless communication systems for healthcare devices under Dr. Venkat Rangan.

2016 Conference Paper A. Arunan, P, R. Krishnan P., and Ramesh, M. V., “A real-time detection and warning of cardiovascular disease LAHB for a wearable wireless ECG device”, in 2016 IEEE-EMBS International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics (BHI), 2016, pp. 98-101.[Abstract]

According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 17 million people die annually due to cardiac disease, which accounts for 30% of the global deaths. Current studies on cardiac diseases indicate that 15% of the people have Left Anterior Hemiblock (LAHB), which ranks third after Right Bundle Branch Block (RBBB) and Left Bundle Branch Block (LBBB). To our knowledge, a reliably consistent disease detection and warning algorithm is not currently available for LAHB although various ECG morphologies can be monitored for real-time detection of LAHB. The objective of this research is to develop a real-time detection and warning of LAHB. The presented work describes the design of a weighted feature-based disease classification algorithm, which can be run in a resource constrained mobile environment for effective realtime diagnosis. The testing and evaluation of the algorithm indicates that it is able to detect LAHB with an accuracy of 95.3% and specificity of 100%. © 2016 IEEE. More »»

2015 Patent P. V. Rangan, Hariharan, B., P, R. Krishnan P., Narayanankutty, R., Gopakumar, S. A., and Gopalakrishnan, U., “System and Method for Synthesizing and Preserving Consistent Relative Neighborhood Position in Multi-Perspective Multi-Point Tele-Immersive Environments”, 2015.[Abstract]

An e-learning system has a local classroom with an instructor station and a microphone and a local student station with a microphone, a remote classroom with an instructor display and a student station with a microphone, and planar displays and video cameras in each of the classrooms, the remote and local classrooms connected over a network, with a server monitoring feeds and enforcing exclusive states, such that audio and video feeds are managed in a manner that video and audio of the instructor, the local students and the first remote students, as seen and heard either directly or via speakers and displays by each of the instructor, the local students and the remote students presents to each as though all are interacting in the same room. (India Provisional Patent Application No. 3888/CHE/2013)
