Abstract

With recent advances in technology, various wearable sensors have been developed for the monitoring of human physiological parameters. A Body Sensor Network (BSN) consisting of such physiological and biomedical sensor nodes placed on, near or within a human body can be used for real-time health monitoring. In this paper, we describe an on-going effort to develop a system consisting of interconnected BSNs for real-time health monitoring of soldiers. We discuss the background and an application scenario for this project. We describe the preliminary prototype of the system and present a blast source localization application.
