Wearable Wireless Body Area Networks (WWBAN)

Presented by Jingjing He

788.11J Presentation


Motivation
Motivation

  • Statistics suggest that health care needs a major shift toward more scalable and more affordable solutions.

  • Wearable systems for continuous health monitoring are a key technology in helping the transition to more proactive and affordable healthcare


The main idea
The Main Idea

  • Seamlessly integrate sensor nodes into wireless personal or body networks (WPANs or WBANs) for inexpensive, non-invasive, continuous, ambulatory health monitoring with almost real-time updates of medical records via Internet.


The main achievements
The Main Achievements

  • prototype sensor network for health monitoring,

    including system architecture, hardware and

    software organization

  • solutions for time synchronization, power

    management and on-chip signal processing


The challenges
The Challenges

  • synchronized time stamps for proper correlation of data coming from different sensors and for efficient sharing of communication channel

  • reduced total power consumption: wearable sensors means size of sensor small enough, so does the battery size



Hardware
Hardware

Multiple ActiS sensor nodes;

Each sensor node utilizes a

commercially available wireless sensor platform Telos and a custom intelligent signal processing daughter card attached to the Telos platform


Innovation
Innovation

  • The idea to use WWBAN to enable continual, unobtrusive, ambulatory heath monitoring itself is cool

  • In this paper, authors gave a prototype WWBAN based on off-the-shelf wireless sensor platforms and custom-designed ECG and motion sensors, which makes the idea more exciting.
