WSN Integrated Cloud Computing for N-Care System (NCS) Using Middleware Services
The number of wireless devices with powerful sensing capabilities is constantly growing. A mobile phone is an example of a device that is packed with several powerful sensors. Cloud computing is another area that been in focus over the last decade. Cloud computing can be defined as an architectural abstraction that provides scalability and reliability based on requirement. The challenge lies in the fact that sensors for different purposes are heterogeneous in nature. The authors propose a framework called the N-Care System that utilizes heterogeneous wireless networks to collect data, cloud services to provide additional computational capabilities and provides information for different types of end users.
