Context awareness in Body Sensor Networks (BSNs) has the significance of associating physiological user activity and the environment to the sensed signals of the user. The context information derived from a BSN can be used in pervasive healthcare monitoring for relating importance to events and specifically for accurate episode detection. This paperb addresses the issue of context-aware sensing in BSNs, and survey different techniques for deducing context awareness.
