ZigBee Based Wireless Sensor Network Application for Monitoring Health Data of Elderly People
Recent developments in wireless technologies and the fabrication of semiconductor miniature sensors are sizing wireless sensor networks smaller and more cost-effective for their applications in various fields of interest. The prospects for Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology are strong. Moreover, the ZigBee based WSN is capable to provide reliable, cost-effective, low-power, wirelessly networked monitoring and control products based on an open global standard. It can play an important role in the adoption of Assistive Technology by enabling wireless low-power communication between devices and services that foster safe, healthy and independent living conditions for the disabled or elderly.
