Internet of Things for Measuring Human Activities in Ambient Assisted Living and e-Health

Amine Rghioui, Sandra Sendra, Jaime Lloret, Abedlmajid Oumnad


Internet of things (IoT) is a new paradigm that combines several technologies such as computers, Internet, sensor networks, radio frequency identification (RFID), communication technology and embedded systems to form a system that links the real world with digital world. Currently, a large number of smart objects and different type of devices are interconnected and more and more they are being used in Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) scenarios for improving the daily tasks of elderly and disabled people. This paper presents an IoT architecture and protocol for Ambient Assisted Living and e-health. It is designed for heterogeneous AAL and e-health scenarios where an IoT network is the most suitable option to interconnect all elements. Finally, we simulate a medium-size network with four protocols especially designed for networks with important energy constraints in order to show their performance
