Special Issue Information
In recent years, sensor networks (SN) and Internet of Things (IoT) became emerging technologies with tremendous popularity among industry and academia. Due to their multidisciplinary approach, sensor networks and IoT have been phenomenal in revolutionizing many aspects of traditional healthcare and ambient assisted living paradigms. At the same time, traditional healthcare systems can no longer satisfy the needs of a continuously growing and developing society.
Sensor networks are composed of resource-constrained devices to gather data from the environment. These devices allow the continuous and real-time collection of an individual's health information and their related behavior. IoT is considered a bridging platform that connects the physical world and cyberspace so that healthcare services and applications with high efficiency and productivity can be obtained. However, in-depth research efforts on IoT systems, networks, and architectures for efficient large-scale deployments are still required to fill the gaps between the satisfying quality of service requirements and cost-effective implementations and operations.
IoT and sensor networks have emerged as very effective services in the healthcare industry as the integration of IoT devices with medical applications improves their performance and quality, thus providing high value to patients. IoT and sensor networks have been applied for various e-Health applications and thus improve the diagnostic tools, such as body monitoring, and epigenetic and neuropsychological tests.
All submitted papers to this Special Issue should focus on new contributions to the state-of-the-art in various aspects of sensor networks and IoT, supported with e-Health applications, from both academia and industry.
