3ACare: A Wireless Body Sensor Network for Health Alert and Monitoring
The development of Micro-ElectroMechanical Systems ,integrated circuits, wireless communications have resulted in the creation of miniature, ultra-low power, and wearable health monitoring system. The system can be defined as a Body Sensor Network that can be embedded in the user’s outfit as a part of the clothing .This 3ACare system is a wearable health monitoring and alert system which can give anyone health care at anytime and anywhere. The system continuously collects multiple vital signs by physiological sensors and evaluates the signs in a personal server such as a PDA. And the personal server transfers the data to a medical server center by 3G net or Internet. The doctor in the medical server center will give the patients message after they diagnosed the data.The paper describes the architecture of 3ACare and the details of the wireless body sensor network (WBSN) nodes and the test result.
