A Secure Internet of Things based Smart Monitoring System

A Secure Internet of Things based Smart Monitoring System

A low-cost sensor network system implementation to monitor crucial parameters in an indoor environment is proposed in the paper [11].To provide a improved risk management strategy to prevent causalities in a Reinforced Concrete (RC) and masonry building during earthquake and floods, a monitoring system is proposed in paper [12] which screens the health of the structural elements in RC and warn the authorities if there is any physical damage. The paper [13] has presented a water quality monitoring system using WSN to supply clean and safe water. The laborious, time consuming, ineffective method of conventional monitoring process which involves a long procedure, from collecting the samples manually and to send them to laboratory for analysis to get the results which are not real-time in nature has been replaced by an alternative process based on WSN which are very affordable and can be operated remotely and provide real-time results with least human intervention. In paper [14] a hierarchical routing protocol for water quality monitoring of river or lake is proposed by deploying a huge number of inexpensive sensor nodes in a large area using hierarchical communication structure, which reduces the overhead in communication and increases the life span of WSN as compared to LEACH, its predecessor. To monitor the traffic volume, performing vehicle classification, an IoT based wireless sensor system is presented in this paper [15].In the paper [16] a WSN based monitoring system to monitor Soil quality parameters such as humidity, temperature, acidity, and conductivity is proposed. A wearable smart sensor device is designed in the paper [17]for an elderly person which can detect the accidental falls of the person by monitoring the treble, using consumer home networks. The paper [18] proposed in-pipe monitoring and on-the-fly assessment of water quality in real time for drinking water distribution system by using low-cost sensor nodes. A real-time damage detection application by using an open source data analytics WSN called Snow Fort is used for structural health monitoring is proposed in the paper [19].The paper [20] introduced two resolutions which are not equally exclusive by analyzing two usual situations involved in seawater quality

Analysis of in to out wireless body area network systems : towards QoS aware health internet of things applications

Analysis of in to out wireless body area network systems : towards QoS aware health internet of things applications

Kurup et al. proposed the first in-body path loss (PL) model for homogeneous human muscle tissue at 2.45 GHz in 2009 [14]. Later they reported an extended PL model, which includes the conductivity and permittivity of the human tissues in [15]. However, those PL models and other studies are antenna-specific and only applicable to the virtual family models provided by either of the SEMCAD X or FEKO software packages [4,5,14,15]. In this paper, the PL model is obtained by using software from Computer Simulation Technology (CST) [16] and the recently proposed 3D heterogeneous human body model developed by Kurup et al. [7]. The PL result is believed to be more accurate because the CST software takes the loss tangent parameters of human tissues and organs into account in the simulations and the deviation value is smaller than that seen in [11–15,17]. Furthermore, it is vital to choose suitable digital modulation techniques to overcome the strong power attenuation over the shadow fading channel caused by the intra-body environment [18]. The relationship between a large range of data rates from 250 kbps to 30 Mbps and the operating communication distance for safe transmission powers is discussed and investigated when using the selected modulation schemes. Routing protocols have been reported to discover and analyze the most energy efficient route [19,20]. Relay based protocol solutions have also been studied that minimize the energy consumption of the in-body sensor nodes by reducing the length of the transmission distance [21]. A two relay based WBAN routing protocol has been investigated by Deepak and Babu [22] and the results show that the proposed routing scheme outperforms direct communication and single relay methods in terms of transmission reliability and energy efficiency. Cooperative communication techniques have gained significant attention as an effective strategy to improve energy efficiency and spatial diversity in wireless fading channels [21]. However, the incremental relaying routing protocol strategy has not been investigated in I2O WBANs.

Remote vital signs monitoring based on wireless sensor networks

Remote vital signs monitoring based on wireless sensor networks

Invasive methods are exclusively used in the hospital environment and use probes that sense the air flow. The most common non-invasive methods are the impedance pneumography and the inductive plethysmography. Impedance pneumographic devices measure the voltage drop across thoracic electrodes, which increases during inspiration and decreases during expiration. Inductive plethysmography employs arrays of sinusoidally arranged copper wires excited by a low-current, high-frequency electrical oscillator circuit. Movement of the thorax causes variations in the magnetic fields, which are measured as voltage changes over time. Other methods for assessing the respiration rate include non-contact approaches. For example, EMFIT, a company from Finland, produces a non-contact monitoring system capable of detecting heart beating and breathing rate of in-bed patients. It is based on elastic, permanently charged ferro- electret film that converts mechanical stress into proportionate electrical energy [50]. Other non-contact technologies under development include the use of reflection radio waves, capacitive and optical sensors, microwave Doppler radar and thermal image processing [5, 120, 162, 180, 207].

Towards NLG for Physiological Data Monitoring with Body Area Networks

Towards NLG for Physiological Data Monitoring with Body Area Networks

A basic issue in any design of a NLG system is un- derstanding the audience of the generated text. For health monitoring used e.g. at home this issue is highly relevant as a variety of people with diverse backgrounds may use a system. For example, a physician should have an interpretation using spe- cial terms, in contrast for a lay user where infor- mation should be presented in a simple way. For instance, for a decreasing trend in heart rate lower than defined values, the constructed message for the doctor could be: “There is a Bradycardia at . . . ”. But for the patient itself it could be just: “Your heart rate was low at . . . ”. It is also im- portant to note that the generated text for the same user in various situations should also differ. For instance a high heart rate at night presents a dif- ferent situation than having a high heart rate dur- ing the high levels of activity. Consequently, all the modules in NLG systems (data analysis, docu- ment planning, etc.) need to consider these aspects related to the end user.

A Survey: Wireless Body Area Network for Health Monitoring

A Survey: Wireless Body Area Network for Health Monitoring

IEEE 802.15.6 is the first WBAN standard that serves various medical and non-medical applications and supports communications inside and around the human body. IEEE 802.15.6 standard [10] uses different frequency bands for data transmission including: The Narrowband (NB) which includes the 400, 800, 900 MHz and the 2.3 and 2.4 GHz bands; the Ultra Wideband (UWB)4, which uses the 3.111.2 GHz; and the Human Body Communication (HBC) [1] which uses the frequencies within the range of 1050MHz. This standard is a step forward in wearable wireless sensor networks as it is designed specifically for use with a wide range of data rates, less energy consumption, low range, ample number of nodes (256) per body area network and different node priorities according to the application requirements. The channel access is handled using CSMA/CA [2] or slotted Aloha access procedure. It provides flexibility in security features, since it defines three security schemes. IEEE 802.15.6 standard can reach data rates up to 10 Mbps while being extremely low power. In addition, it can consider some movements of body (i.e. straight walking from one point to another), which is not suitable for emerging WBAN applications requiring scenarios such as sitting, laying, standing up, jogging, swimming and running. This standard can satisfy most of the WBAN applications throughput requirements by maximum achieving 680 Kbps. But, it is not able to meet the constraints of the emerging applications which require high quality audio or video transmissions.
