Real-time heart attack mobile detection service (RHAMDS): An IoT use case for software defined networks
MetadataShow full item record
Continuous growing interest in IoT applications particularly for a smart city setting has attracted many researchers. E-health applications in IoT networks are the newest area of interest in this research field. On the other hand, networking and communications fields are witnessing a revolution through the new concepts of Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) characterised by latency sensitivity and geographical awareness. Moreover, the Software Defined Network (SDN) is an innovative network paradigm that allows programming of the network through the separation of the data plane and the control plane and provides global intelligence for the network. We marry this technologies to propose a novel IoT e-health service; Real-time Heart Attack Mobile Detection Service (RHAMDS) through voice control and gesture control using smart watches. RHAMDS aims to improve response time of emergency aid for heart attack patients, in vehicular networks in particular, and to prevent the possible resulting vehicle collisions. In this paper, we present the proposed RHAMDS's network architecture, workflow, and model variations.
