The last few years have seen the emergence of many applications such as wellness, chronic disease management and assisted living that require pervasive sensing of people and the environment. Many of these applications require on-body sensing of various parameters including heart-rate, caloric burn, activity, temperature, etc. Low power wireless technologies are a key enabler for these applications, as it allows distributed sensing and aggregation without the cost of wiring the individual… CONTINUE READING
