United Arab Emirates University was established in 1975 and is the first and oldest of the three government-sponsored institutions of higher learning in the United Arab Emirates . The university is located in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. The UAEU is an accredited comprehensive research-based institution providing research solutions to support the UAE and, through its global partners, the wider world.The university admits UAE nationals primarily, with about 15% of its student body coming predominantly from other Gulf Cooperation Council countries.

A method and apparatus are described for detecting voice related vibration in the upper region of the chest and synthesizing human speech. The innovation finds its use in speech rehabilitation applications among others, specifically in speech impairments and speech disability arising due to accident, congenital defects or other reasons. A set of piezoelectric based sensors are placed on an upper region of the chest atop or near sound tendons. The sensors pick up the vibrations in the sound tendons and convert the vibrations into electrical output signals. These signals are filtered, amplified and processed using the signal recognition unit. Subsequently, a set of parameters are extracted and used to generate speech or a written text. The sensors incorporate piezoelectric or other transducing materials. These sensors are externally affixed to a human body surface corresponding to the position of the sounds tendons in the upper chest/neck region.

A sensing device and a sensing method for operating the same are disclosed. An analytical sample is subjected to an electric field within a sample chamber using at least two electrodes. Initially, a holding voltage is provided such that the analyte in the analytical sample polarizes and diffuses towards one of the electrodes forming an electrode- electrolyte interface. Subsequently, a pulsating sweep voltage is provided across the two electrodes. A current- voltage profile and/or a capacitance-voltage profile of the analytical sample are determined. The analyte is identified and quantified based on the current-voltage profile and capacitance-voltage profile respectively.
