The emergence of Internet of Things (IoT) applications and rapid advances in wireless communication technologies have motivated a paradigm shift in the development of viable applications such as mobile-health (m-health). These applications boost the opportunity for ubiquitous real-time monitoring using different data types such as electroencephalography (EEG), electrocardiography (ECG), etc. However, many remote monitoring applications require continuous sensing for different signals and vital signs, which result in generating large volumes of real time data that requires to be processed, recorded, and transmitted. Thus, designing efficient transceivers is crucial to reduce transmission delay and energy through leveraging data reduction techniques. In this context, we propose an efficient data-specific transceiver design that leverages the inherent characteristics of the generated data at the physical layer to reduce transmitted data size without significant overheads. The goal is to adaptively reduce the amount of data that needs to be transmitted in order to efficiently communicate and possibly store information, while maintaining the required application quality-of-service (QoS) requirements. Our results show the excellent performance of the proposed design in terms of data reduction gain, signal distortion, low complexity, and the advantages that it exhibits with respect to state-of-the-art techniques since we could obtain about 50% compression ratio at 0% distortion and sample error rate.
