High-Definition WPF Realtime Visualization of IR QCL Spectroscopy for Diagnostic Tissue Imaging

Read on to see how a cutting-edge research project at the University of Illinois used SciChart to display Realtime High Definition Heatmaps from Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) Infrared (IR) Spectroscopy surpassing Table-top Fourier Transform IR (FT-IR) technology.

Platform: WPF

Industry: Scientific, Infrared Spectroscopy

The University of Illinois departments of Bioengineering, Mechanical Science & Electrical Computer Engineering were researching alternatives to FT-IR for use in Medical Diagnostics. Despite exponential growth of the field and its world-wide research, the clinical sphere has been limited by data management. With over a 100 million data points generated in Realtime current imaging technologies were limited to less than 1% of the data set.

Challenge: To display accurate Realtime charts from Fast Infrared Chemical Imaging for high-definition, high Data sets onto heatmaps and line charts. Data is collected from QCL spectrometers and displayed both for development and end-users.

Solution: SciCharts High Performance WPF charts were used to handle over 1million points of data in Realtime with the capacity to increase up to 10 million. Custom annotations were implemented via SciChart's Rich Core WPF charting API to generate overlaid line annotations and show cursor position and information. This allowed the advent of HD Realtime IR imaging.

Visualization of data from more than 300 sensors from a race car

Read on to see how to Revolve NTNU used SciCharts High Performance WPF Charting Library to handle their complex data from over 300 sensors in their Race Car.

Platform: WPF

Industry: Engineering, Formula Student

Revolve NTNU Norwegian University of Science & Technology is an independent student organization engaged in Formula Student, Europe’s most established educational motorsport competition. Creating new iterations of their Race Car each year, Revolve needed to be able to visualization their multi-stream, high-bandwidth data from their hundreds of sensors in Realtime to ensure top performance and allow for torque vectoring and testing of their car.

Challenge: Revolve needed a charting tool that could handle the visualization of data from over 300 sensors in linegraphs, scatter plots and heatmaps all in Realtime. Sensors mounted inside the Formula Student Race Car output data covering temperature, voltage and torque during a race and needed to be analysed on a smooth UI whilst allowing for annotations and overlays.

Solution: SciChart's High Performance WPF charts were used to smoothly handle the data from all 300+ sensors in Realtime. Multi-series, High-Bandwidth data was interpreted and annotated with help of rich core WPF charting API allowing for performance analysis and testing. Combined with the comprehensive documentation and tech support, the students at Revolve found SciChart easy to use and integrate into their custom systems.

Dynamic WPF Visualization of ECG signals in Realtime

Read on to see how Cardea Labs used SciCharts High Performance WPF charting library to create a low cost non-invasive health care solution using the open source miBEAT engineering application hardware and resolve their charting issues.

Platform: WPF

Industry: Medical Equipment, Healthcare

Cardea Labs & Cardea Biomedical Technologies Pvt. Ltd wanted to create a low cost non-invasive healthcare solution for the clinical needs of India and the rest of the world. With a focus on creating a cheap portable ECG device that could achieve medical grade clarity, Cardea Labs was only limited by their Charting solutions until SciChart.

Challenge: Cardea Labs needed a dynamically updating chart at 250 points per second with data acquisition through Bluetooth connection for an ECG device derived from the miBEAT hardware platform. The Software solution needed to maintain a smooth UI and be portable, retaining an export function. The solution had to allow increased functionality as well as overlaid information whilst being user friendly.

Solution: SciChart's extensive charting examples were used to create the FIFO functionality required, which generated a Realtime scrolling ECG monitor. This was combined with export function that allowed users to export in numerous formats, so the data coulbe be collated outside of the application. The session window was similarly upgraded to make use of Pan, Zoom & Scroll functions making the UI intuitive and user friendly. Lastly SciChart's High Performance capabilities could handle the 250 points per second in Realtime whilst being used on smaller portable devices.
