Digital Sensors and Sensor Sysstems


Abstract: Progress in personal monitoring health systems is presented is this paper. Acquisition of biological signals can be realized through wearable embedded systems that are based on microcontrollers and RF modems. The wireless sensors networks technology has been adapted for implementation of Body Sensor Networks (BSN). A novel data acquisition system has been designed and implemented in order to acquire body physiological parameters measurements. Emergency call possibility is also considered. Development of an innovative software leads to diagnosis schemes through detection of abnormal arrhythmia incidents. This progress to the development of a standard model for monitoring patients remotely gives results that push research to improve patient’s safety. The goal in this case is to integrate innovative fibrous sensors textrodes in the clothes of patients, athletes and individuals who are engaged in specific critical work (police, military, etc.).


Keywords: Personal monitoring health systems, Wearable embedded systems, Wireless sensor network, Data acquisition systems.
