Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) Faryal Zaidi (12TL01) Rapid enhancement in the field of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) leads a variety of applications such as: Smart Road Applications, Micro-Climate Monitoring and Structural Monitoring. One amongst these is human healthcare which originates the use of Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs). A group from 10TL batch had made their final year project on the concept of WBAN, which helps in providing uninterrupted monitoring of patients so as to restrain the adverse health effects. The rapid evolution in the field of Tele-medicine provoked us to work on WBANs. The project aims to serve helpless population of remote areas and provide them a novel system to save their lives. In WBANs, a number of sensors are deployed on the human body in order to collect application specific data. The evolution of WBANs has been able to provide breakthrough solution to provide ubiquitous treatment of patients who are being monitored by their health specialists.

Fig 1 renders an idea that how sensors motes are deployed on human body and how do they communicate. We have proposed the idea of information exchange for the Intra-WBAN communication. Various WBAN sensors are deployed on the human body to calculate parameters like ECG, body temperature, blood pressure, pulse rate etc. Sensors are integrated as the Iris motes which would sense the different vital signs, would collect and send this information to the base station placed at the abdomen using Zig bee interface. Data from the base station would be send to the laptop and from where it could be relayed to any medical server.

A French company Alcatel lucent and researchers of British telecommunications (BT) had start working on it.

Making:-

Iris Motes

Future work : Above research work is about the efficient topological behaviour desirable to ensure reliability, link quality and efficient power utilization. Along with this, the integration of the health sensors with the iris mote is to open the new paradigm for the integrating techniques of sensors. Future WBANs design include concentrating on the number of areas including the hardware and protocol design.

Achievements : 

Their project has been awarded 1st prize in Poster Session during “1st International Conference on Wireless Sensor Networks for Developing Countries 2013”, held at MUET Jamshoro, Pakistan. Selected as one of Top 5 ideas presented in Student Poster Contest of “IEEE Global Humanitarian Technology Conference (GHTC 2013)”, held in 20-23 October at San Jose, California, USA.

The trail was carried out using existing fiber optic cable over an area of 410.383km, specifically between Ipswich and Central London. Researchers used new flexi grid Infrastructure to increase the gaps between several transmission channels. It allows multiple signals to be laid over the top of one another within entire cable. By using flexi grid an “Alien super channel “was created which is comprised of seven 200 Gb/s parallel channels, this boost up transmission efficiency by 42.5% over available broadband networks. The most exciting specialty of this connection is that it doesn’t need any expensive upgrade it can be done with existing optic fiber cables by only using flexi grid.

THE WORLD THROUGH GLASS Natasha Qureshi (13TL136) Google Glass is also known as a “Wearable Computer”. Designed and shaped as simple eye glasses. It has a small optical head-mounted display on the side of the glass. A screen appears in-front of the eye, there is a camera fitted on the outer corner of the glass and touch pad on the side stick.

Google glasses are known for its qualities, which are:       

Figure 1: Google Glass

Along with Google, Babak Parviz (an electrical engineer) led the project Glass. They were the ones who brought up the idea of these glasses, which made a bombastic evolution in our world. It was first introduced in 2011 and uptill now, a few changes have been made in it. It is simple, slim, small and light in weight.

It has android 4.0.4 Camera of 5-mega Pixel Video Recorder Wi-Fi (Internet Browser) Storage of 16 GB RAM 682 MB Bone Conduction an Audio Transcoder etc.

These Google Glass have enormous advantages. It can take pictures, record videos hand free. It can share whatever you see live. It connects one to the social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Gmail and can also provide a direction of a place. It translates your voice in any other language. This is a device with gigantic advantages. These glasses can be activated with either the command ‘Ok Glass’ or by a gesture of hands made by the wearer. Once the glasses get activated, they wait for further commands, for example: If the wearer wants to take a picture, he commands ‘Take a picture’ and it will instantaneously take a picture. Likewise for video recording just command ‘Record Video’ and it will start recording the video. Google Glass is a wearable Smartphone; it has intended to make everyday life much easier. Time Magazine gave Google Glass a title of “Best Invention of the Year 2012”.

Progress:After the success of field test Researchers thought that it could be helpful for consumer and business demand for increased bandwidth. Optical marketing leader of Alcatellucent Kevin told BBC news that this development was similar to increase the amount of lanes available to network traffic during rush hour. Unfortunately this mega speed is under process and would take some years to be implemented so that it can meet consumer and business demand. A lot of benefits are being expected from this development. Hopefully this technology will be implemented in UK by 2017.
