Optimizing Energy Efficiency of Wearable Sensors Using Fog-assisted Control

by   Delaram Amiri, et al.

Recent advances in the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies have enabled the use of wearables for remote patient monitoring. Wearable sensors capture the patient's vital signs, and provide alerts or diagnosis based on the collected data. Unfortunately, wearables typically have limited energy and computational capacity, making their use challenging for healthcare applications where monitoring must continue uninterrupted long time, without the need to charge or change the battery. Fog computing can alleviate this problem by offloading computationally intensive tasks from the sensor layer to higher layers, thereby not only meeting the sensors' limited computational capacity but also enabling the use of local closed-loop energy optimization algorithms to increase the battery life.
