Patent US6466807 - Optical glucose detector

Patent US6466807 - Optical glucose detector | random computing | Scoop.it
A device for the in vivo measurement of the concentration of an analyte in an aqueous solution comprises a transmitter for illuminating a body part with light at a plurality of predetermined wavelengths. A detector receives light from such body part and generates input signals representative of the intensity of received light at each of the predetermined wavelengths, and a computer coupled to the detector generates an output signal representative of the analyte concentration in the body part by analysis of the input signals received from the detector. The detector is adapted to generate input signals representative of the intensity of light received at three discrete wavelengths, and a formula is provided for calculating the output signal on the basis thereof.

What are Edge Analytics? | PACKT Books

move some of the data processing and storage to either a location closer to the device (a “cloudlet” or “edge node”) or to the device itself. “Fog Computing” is where some of the processing and storage of data occurs between the end devices and cloud computing facilities. “Mist Computing” is where the processing and storage of data occurs in the end devices themselves. These are collectively known as “Edge Computing” or “Edge Analytics” and, more specifically for mobile, “Mobile Edge Computing” (MEC).
