Body Area Networks using IEEE 802 15 6 Excerpt :

The market of wearable wireless medical sensors is experiencing a rapid growth and the associated telecommunications services for the healthcare sector are forecast to further increase in the next years. Medical body area networks (MBANs) allow the mobility of patients and medical personnel by facilitating the remote monitoring of patients suffering from chronic or risky diseases. Currently, MBANs are being introduced in unlicensed frequency bands, where the risk of mutual interference with other electronic devices radiating in the same band can be high. Thus, coexistence is an issue on which the research scientists have dedicated much effort. Ultra wideband (UWB) signals offer many advantages to MBANs, and some features of this technology can be exploited for effective implementation of services. UWB can help in several aspects, like spectrum efficiency, energy consumption and coexistence. This book discusses the main aspects, and, in particular, the coexistence, of MBANs based on the IEEE 802.15.6 Standard using UWB physical layer. A exhaustive description of body area networks using IEEE802.15.4 technologies, providing an in-depth understanding of how the overall system works Provides understanding and insight on the use of ultra wide band technologies for the physical layer of body area networks; low power consumption and coexistence are investigated Includes services, methodologies and results related to link-level and system-level evaluations of body area networks

Written by a team of experts at the forefront of the cyber-physical systems (CPS) revolution, this book provides an in-depth look at security and privacy, two of the most critical challenges facing both the CPS research and development community and ICT professionals. It explores, in depth, the key technical, social, and legal issues at stake, and it provides readers with the information they need to advance research and development in this exciting area. Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are engineered systems that are built from, and depend upon the seamless integration of computational algorithms and physical components. Advances in CPS will enable capability, adaptability, scalability, resiliency, safety, security, and usability far in excess of what today’s simple embedded systems can provide. Just as the Internet revolutionized the way we interact with information, CPS technology has already begun to transform the way people interact with engineered systems. In the years ahead, smart CPS will drive innovation and competition across industry sectors, from agriculture, energy, and transportation, to architecture, healthcare, and manufacturing. A priceless source of practical information and inspiration, Security and Privacy in Cyber-Physical Systems: Foundations, Principles and Applications is certain to have a profound impact on ongoing R&D and education at the confluence of security, privacy, and CPS.
