Smart environments are the fragmentations of smart cities under the topic of the Internet of things. Smart environments and health care contain interoperable thoughts, things, and organizations, which arrange new information and correspondence progressions to improve and update individual fulfillment for people at all stages of life. The smart environment for health care monitors the vital parameters of an individual under a monitoring environment. Smart environment frameworks may be all the more promptly embraced by occupants, if the checking frameworks were composed and created as a uniquely-crafted apparatus and provide suitable help to administer well-being.
Smart environments are an amalgamation of three critical elements: Firstly, the physical segments (sensors and electronic gadgets); secondly, the communication segment used to realize the systems; and third, data analytics via machine learning and data mining. The present progress in smart environments and health care systems are towards hazard-free protection and, in addition, agreeable genuine settings for private-environment conditions.
This Special Issue aims to publish original, significant and visionary papers describing scientific methods and technologies that improve the efficiency, productivity, quality and reliability of smart environments for health care. This Special Issue will provide a broad platform for publishing the many rapid advances that have been currently achieved in the area of assisted living. In this Special Issue, we would like to focus on understanding what should be done to improve sensing awareness in regards to humans for better well-being conditions. Submissions of scientific results from experts in academia and industry, worldwide, are strongly encouraged.
