CountaKick foetal monitoring system

With the World Health Organization reporting that in 2015, 18.4 out of every 1000 babies are stillborn, this still remains a challenge in our modern world. In turn, the countakick project focuses on the development for the extraction of features for compression and components for source separation relating to foetal movement; through the use of modern data extraction techniques including Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficients, Principle Component Analysis and Independent Component Analysis .This extraction will form part of a monitoring system and the resulting data, to be used for machine learning and in turn as a monitoring tool by health care professionals; and for further studies on the relationship between foetal movement and health conditions of a fetus.
