Empowering Technology Enabled Care Using IoT and Smart Devices: A Review
Designing power aware wearable devices is the main key in building compact size autonomous smart devices to successfully connect health Internet of things solutions. With their ability to perform tasks ranging from simple self-monitoring to complex interactive tasks, these devices hold great promises in providing a large scale cost effective solution to the challenges facing nowadays healthcare systems. Despite the advances in sensing and hardware design, there still remain several technical challenges facing the research community to build devices that meet the computational requirements with a self-powered capability. Overcoming these challenges require major improvements in all the building blocks of wearable devices including sensors, power management, signal processing, computing architectures, and communication. This paper surveys some of the past milestones related to these subsystems and discusses promising research directions addressing their limitations. - 2001-2012 IEEE.
