Abstract:
The paper presents ASE-BAN, a wireless Body Area Network (BAN) developed at Aarhus University School of Engineering (ASE). ASE-BAN is a modular platform enabling research in the healthcare area and allowing real-life experiments with real users. The paper presents requirements, architecture and implementation of a hardware platform consisting of different modules, the current progress of research with development of sensor nodes for this ASE-BAN and the corresponding software. The concept of a body gateway is presented alongside with the preliminary results obtained with our current wireless BAN prototype.
