Lightweight Signal Processing for Wearable Body Sensor Networks Chapter uri icon


  • Use of mobile sensor-based platforms for human action recognitionis an ever-growing area of research. Recent advances in this field allowpatients to wear several small sensors with embedded processors and radios.Collectively, these sensors form a body sensor network (BSN). AlthoughBSNs have the potential to enable many useful applications [1], limitedprocessing power, storage and energy make efficient use of these systemscrucial. Moreover, user comfort is a major issue, which can cause patients tobecome frustrated and stop wearing the sensor nodes. The interactionbetween the human body and these wearable nodes here is defined as wearability. 2011 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
