Abstract [en]

Internet of Things based systems provides a viable and organized approach to improve health and wellbeing of mankind. Particularly, health monitoring systems based on wireless body sensor networks become attainable due to increasing number of elderly people that needs healthcare services frequently. In such system, power consumption of a sensor node is an important issue. In order to handle the issue, a smart gateway with fog computing capabilities is presented. Fog computing includes several services such as distributed database management, Electrocardiography (ECG) feature extraction, user graphical interface with access management and push notations. With fog computing, the burden of a cloud server can be reduced and more than 50% of power consumption can be saved at a sensor node. Additionally, through fog computing, the system ensures that the obtained health data can be visualized and diagnosed in real-time even though there is a disconnection between the gateway and cloud server.
