  • It is essential to investigate the structure and the main characteristic of Home USN (Ubiquitous Sensor Network) technologies in built ubiquitous environment while designing bio-sensors. For this study, Thermistor elements and Thermopile black body have been selected to implement ubiquitous technologies for bio-sensors and wireless network such as WiBro has been used to transfer sensing data to the BSN (Bio-Sensor Network) gateway. It is certain that efficiency of ubiquitous space design is improved if main components of each specific sensor network are analyzed precisely in digital way and corresponding communication modules are prepared accordingly. Ubiquitous technology, in conclusion, has to be applied not only with systematical mechanism or electronic setting but in human-centered atmosphere as well, keeping with deep consideration for bio-housing service factors in eco-friendly surrounding.

  • The bio-Sensors, which are sensing the vital signs of human bodies, are largely used by the medical equipment. Recently, the sensor network technology, which composes of the sensor interface for small-seize hardware, processor, the wireless communication module and battery in small sized hardware, has been extended to the area of bio-senor network systems due to the advances of the MEMS technology. In this paper we have suggested a design and implementation of a health care information system(called u-EMS) using a bio-sensor network technology that is a combination of the bio-sensor and the sensor network technology. In proposed system, we have used the following vital body sensors such as EKG sensor, the blood pressure sensor, the heart rate sensor, the pulse oximeter sensor and the glucose sensor. We have collected various vital sign data through the sensor network module and processed the data to implement a health care measurement system. Such measured data can be displayed by the wireless terminal(PDA, Cell phone) and the digital-frame display device. Finally, we have conducted a series of tests which considered both patient's vital sign and context-awared information in order to improve the effectiveness of the u-EMS.

  • It is essential to investigate the structure and the main characteristics of BSN (Bio-Sensor Network) platform in built smart healthcare environment while designing healthy housing facilities. For this study, WSN (Wireless Sensor Network) data transmission technologies have been employed with medical sensors, and optimal medical devices would provide various Web 2.0 services by connecting to the WiBro network. The BSN platform normally recognizes in surroundings of WBAN (Wireless Body Area Network) or WPAN (Wireless Personal Area Network), and it is possible to manage sensor nodes by utilizing SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) and REST (REpresentational State Transfer). In addition, the feature of SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) for mobile gateway is also included for being adapted to huge network structure. Finally, BSN platform will play a role as important clues for developing personal WSN service models for smart healthy housing properties.

  • In this paper, Medium Access Control(MAC) protocol designed for Wireless Body area Sensor Network(Bio-MAC) is proposed, Because in WBSN, the number of node is limited and each node has different characteristics. Also, reliability in transmitting vital data sensed at each node and periodic transmission should be considered so that general MAC protocol cannot satisfy such requirements of biomedical sensors in WBSN. Bio-MAC aims at optimal MAC protocol in WBSN. For this, Bio-MAC used Pattern -SuperFrame, which modified IEE E 802.15.4-based SuperFrame structurely. Bio-MAC based on TDMA uses Medium Access-priority and Pattern eXchange -Beacon method for dynamic slot allocation by considering critical sensing data or power consumption level of sensor no de etc. Also, because of the least delay time. Bio-MAC is suitable in the periodic transmission of vital signal data. The simulation results demonstrate that a efficient performance in WBSN can be achieved through the proposed Bio-MAC.

  • An ubiquitous sensor network (USN) system to monitor the bio information and the emergency of the elderly in the silver town is presented. The USN system consists of the sensor node platforms based on MCU of Atmage128L and RF Chip of CC2420 satisfying IEEE 802.15.4, which includes the bios sensor module such as the electrocardiogram (ECG) sensor and the temperature sensor. Additionally, when an emergency of the elderly is occurred in the silver town, the routing algorithm suitable to find and inform the location of the elderly is proposed, and the proposed routing algorithm is applied to the USN. To collect and manage the ECG data at the PC connected to the sink node, LabView software is used. The bio information and the emergency of the elderly can also be monitored at the client PC by TCP/IP networks in the USN system.

  • As a core technology realizing ubiquitous world, recent researches are being concentrated to wireless sensor network. However, most research results were focused to the sensor network technology itself, even though interworking between the sensor network and Internet is also one of primitive requirements for ubiquitous world. In this paper, we design the tiny TCP/IPv6 profile which makes it possible to inter-connect the sensor network device to IPv6 based Internet. To confirm operation of the designed profile, we experimentally implemented and evaluated minimum TCP/IPv6 based on TinyOS. The evaluation result shows that throughput of our tiny TCP/IPv6 is almost same as that of TinyOS component.

  • A fully CMOS-integrated carbon nanotube (CNT) sensor array is proposed. After the sensor chip is fabricated in commercial CMOS process, the CNTs network is formed on the top of the fabricated sensor chip through the room-temperature post-CMOS processes. When the resistance of the CNT is changed by the chemical reaction, the read-out circuit in the chip measures the charging time of the $R_{CNT}$-Capacitor. finally the information of measured frequency is converted to a digital code. The CMOS sensor chip was fabricated by standard 0.18um technology and the size of the $8{\times}8$ sensor array is $2mm{\times}2mn$. We have carried out an experiment detecting the biochemical material, glutamate, using this sensor chip. From the experiment the CMOS sensor chip shows the feasibility of sensor for the simultaneous detection of the various target materials.

  • The energy consumption problem should be taken into consideration in wireless sensor network. Many studies have been proposed to address the energy consumption and delay problem. In this paper, we propose BISA(Bio-inspired Scheduling Algorithm) to reduce the energy consumption and delay in wireless sensor networks based on biological system. BISA investigates energy-efficient routing path and minimizes the energy consumption and delay using multi-channel for data transmission by multiplexing data transmission path. Through simulation, we confirm that the proposed scheme guarantees the efficient energy consumption and delay requirement.
