A Distributed Network Management Approach to WSN in Personal Healthcare Applications
This paper describes the development of a Wireless Sensor Network personal health monitoring system called Medical MoteCare which uses a combination of medical and environmental sensors. SNMP and Code Blue agents are incorporated in the system as is the network management software JaguarSX. Network management models and tools provide an alternative, scalable and affordable solution to WSN health monitoring applications that allow for data storage correlation and dissemination as well as timely alerts when parameters are breached. This paper forms part of a large grant aimed at providing assistive healthcare for the elderly.
