Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is one of the most serious sleep disorders. People who is suffered from OSA may not be aware that their upper airway is blocked and they have difficulty to breathe. For this reason, real-time sleep monitoring in daily life is important. In response to this need, I aim to develop an unobtrusive, wireless sleep monitoring system called SleepSmart. SleepSmart, is a smart mattress topper, which is integrated with textile pressure sensors and allows people to monitor their sleeping habits and respiration rate in real-time in their own bed with its IoT functions. The overall research has three milestones: (1) designing the mattress topper, (2) performing signal analysis on the pressure data to extract respiration rate, and (3) establishing an IoT infrastructure to provide services. This paper demonstrates the promising ongoing research results and the goals for future milestones.
