Bio-Medical Telemetry: Sensing and Transmitting Biological Information from Animals and Man, 2nd Edition
August 1998, Wiley-IEEE Press
You'll find especially valuable and current information on:
- Ultrasonic radio methods for telemetering
- Satellite tracking
- Underwater methods of tracking
Of great value to the bio-medical engineer as well as any reader curious about the subject, this volume describes the workings of the human nervous system as seen through the eyes of an engineer. With a broad scope and inviting writing style, it provides a fascinating alternative to the unwieldy sources written by life scientists.
