Title: Body Area Sensor Network

Date: Monday, 19th June, 2006
Time: 11:30 to 12:30 hrs.
Venue: SIC 301, 'C' Block, 03rd floor, KReSIT

Speaker: Dr. Lakshman Tamil

Abstract:Sensor networking technology is becoming ubiquitous and the confluence of sensor networking with computing and wireless communication will revolutionize the way we live, work and interact. The rising older population and increasing health care cost are posing a great challenge to modern societies all over the world. The application of sensor technology to monitor vital signs and summon help when necessary will be a great boon to managing health care and well being of senior citizens. Developing a wireless body area sensor network which can interconnect with various sensors implanted inside the body as well as those attached to the surface of the body is an important step towards monitoring vital signs and health of people. Though there is lot of development in the general area of wireless sensor networking, a special adaptation of the technology to fit the special requirements imposed by the body area network is a must; otherwise the cost, power, security and intelligence requirement cannot be met.

The talk will discuss aspects of body area network which are network architecture, connectivity to Internet, security, intrusion protection, sensor platform and protocol stack.
