—Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have attracted growing interest in the last decade as an infrastructure to support a diversity of ubiquitous computing and cyber-physical systems. However, most research work has focused on protocols or on specific applications. As a result, there remains a clear lack of effective, feasible and usable system architectures(More)
—We consider reliable communications in Body Area Networks (BAN), where a set of nodes placed on human body are connected using wireless links. In order to keep the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) as low as possible for health safety reasons, these networks operate in low transmit power regime, which however, is known to be error prone. It has been observed(More)
In the new era of connectivity, marked by the explosive number of wireless electronic devices and the need for smart and pervasive applications, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications are an emerging technology that enables the seamless device interconnection without the need of human interaction. The use of M2M technology can bring to life a wide range of(More)
—Recent advances in the technology of wireless electronic devices have made possible to build ad–hoc Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) using inexpensive nodes consisting of low power processors, a modest amount of memory, and simple wireless transceivers. Over the last years, many novel applications have been envisaged for distributed WSNs in the area of(More)
—Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) technologies constitute a new paradigm that promises quality of life enhancements in chronic-care patients and elderly people. From a communication perspective, they involve heterogeneous deployments of body and ambient sensors in com-pex, multihop topologies. Such networks can significantly benefit from the application of(More)
