Smartphone-Centric Wi-Fi Device-to-Device Sensor Communication for User Mobility in AAL Services
2016 (English)In: Smartphone-Centric Wi-Fi Device-to-Device Sensor Communication for User Mobility in AAL Services, IEEE conference proceedings, 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper evaluates a use-case for smartphone-centric Wi-Fi device-to-device sensor communication that enables user mobility in ambient assisted living (AAL) services. A real-time performance measurement method has been developed and implemented to evaluate the smartphone’s ability to act as a hub and gateway for Wi-Fi connected sensor nodes. The results show that Wi-Fi Direct and Wi-Fi Hotspot are feasible solutions for smartphone-centric device-to-device communication that enables user mobility. In addition, a cloud-based web application for monitoring and displaying sensor data has been implemented.
