The currently unfolding Internet of Things (IoT) technologies will enable health services that have higher quality and lower cost than those available today. However, the large majority of the current IoT research and development expects that the IoT “things” communicate wirelessly, leaving the question of their energy supply and communication reliability more-or-less open. The obvious alternative, wire line, has gained much less attention, perhaps since it is too well known. In this paper, we present an energy-efficient IoT architecture for healthcare applications that leverages clinical and home care scenarios, given their typically fixed, stationary nature, as the mobility of patients is in many cases confined to a room or a building. The architecture is based on intelligent, wired gateways that are power-efficient and low-cost. The gateways link wired/wireless medical sensors and hospital appliances to web services, enabling hospital automation and widespread data collection and aggregation of vital signs in a convenient, and cost-effective approach.

Software-as-a-service (SaaS) has emerged as a new computing paradigm to provide reliable software on demand. With such an inspiring motivation, sensor cloud system can benefit from this infrastructure. Generally, sharing database and schema is the most commonly used data storage model in the cloud. However, the data storage of tenants in the cloud is approaching schema null and evolution issues. To address these limitations, this paper proposes multitenant multiple wide tables with vertical scal...

Internet-of-Things (IoT) is the convergence of Internet with RFID, Sensor and smart objects. IoT can be defined as “things belonging to the Internet” to supply and access all of real-world information. Billions of devices are expected to be associated into the system and that shall require huge distribution of networks as well as the process of transforming raw data into meaningful inferences. IoT is the biggest promise of the technology today, but still lacking a novel mechanism, which can be p...

Today, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) in electronic engineering are used in the monitoring of remote intelligent buildings, and the need for emerging Web 3.0 is becoming more and more in every aspect of electronic engineering. However, the key challenges of monitoring are the monitoring approaches and storage models of huge historical monitoring data. To address these limitations, we attempt to design a WebSocket-based real-time monitoring system for remote intelligent buildings. On one hand, w...
The Internet of Things (IoT) vision is enticing; each and every "thing" in the world is expected to be eventually connected to the Internet, thereby becoming a part of the ``context'' within which the applications live. In most of the IoT research, the focus has been in enabling movable things to communicate, including phones, tablets, RFID tags, watches, and jewellery, to name but a few. In such an approach, the things are expected to have their own batteries or receive temporary power over sho...

These technologies are 6LoWPAN/IEE...
The Internet of Things is the next big possibility and challenge for the Internet. Extending the web architecture to this new domain of constrained wireless networks and devices will be key to achieving the flexibility and scalability needed to make it a success. Web services have proven to be indispensable in creating interoperable communications between machines on today?s Internet, but at the same time the overhead and complexity of web service technology such as SOAP, XML, and HTTP are too h...
With increasing design complexity, the gap from ESL (Electronic System Level) design to RTL synthesis becomes more and more crucial to many industrial projects. Although several behavioral synthesis tools exist to automatically generate synthesizable RTL code from C/C++/SystemC-based input descriptions and software generation for embedded processors is automated as well, an efficient ESL synthesis methodology combining both is still missing. This article presents SystemCoDesigner, a novel System...

Wireless sensor nodes are increasingly being tasked with computation and communication intensive functions while still subject to constraints related to energy availability. On these embedded platforms, once all low power design techniques have been explored, duty-cycling the various subsystems remains the primary option to meet the energy and power constraints. This requires the ability to provide spurts of high MIPS and high bandwidth connections. However, due to the large overheads associated...

Serious games have been in focus of an increasing number of research efforts in the health domain over the last decade. Their maturity led researchers to increase their efforts on approaches and techniques that will facilitate the adoption of these games by older adults in their daily life. As real users' home is the desired destination of serious games, researchers have started taking them out of the lab settings. Towards this and aligned with the technology acceptance model, perceived ease of ...
