Body sensor networks (BSNs) for healthcare put more emphasis on security and adaptation to changes in context and application requirement. Policy-based management enables flexible adaptive behaviour by supporting dynamic loading, enabling and disabling of policies without shutting down nodes. This overcomes many of the limitations of sensor operating systems, such as TinyOS, which do not support dynamic modification of code. Alternative schemes for network adaptation, such as networking… CONTINUE READING
