Smart Diabetes Monitoring Health Care System with the Support of IoT Environment

  • J.Sankar Babu et al.


In recent years, the advancements in the Internet of Things (IoT) technology supporting connections of
smart objects – things over the internet in a transparent way. Healthcare is one of the application
domains in IoT along with sensors, processor aggregator and data storage platform as cloud computing
by means of various communication technologies. The main goal of the proposed framework is to monitor
the physical parameters such as Blood pressure, Respiratory level, ECG, oxygen level and Glucose level
with the help of non – invasive sensors except glucose measurement for a Diabetes DCM patient. The
proposed Smart Monitor System enhances healthcare delivery by communicating patient’s data over
three advanced network protocols – Bluetooth 5.0, Wi–Fi module and 4G LTE Mobile connectivity. The
implementation of the system is achieved by the modified improved version of pine64 Microsystem and
has facility to store the cloud database. If any abnormality, alert notification will be sent to the physician
and caregivers / patients for emergency remotely. Based on this information, Doctors will prescribe the
medicine to patient. In this framework; several characteristics have been examined to consider particular
application such as data speed, power consumption, Data range, Bandwidth, Message capacity, cost and
Battery life. In addition to this, the three challenges are scalability, compatibility and interoperability of
the pine64 Microsystem achieved in a better way when compared with Arduino and Raspberry pi.
