Format: Hardcover
This easy to read book provides a wealth of wireless sensor knowledge that has been gained through years of research and trials from Intel researchers and leading healthcare consortiums. It provided me a brain dump of all the wireless sensor technologies available and the technology and prototypes of sensors in the future. My favorite section is the last chapter that discusses future wireless sensor networks and the "Burnfoot Project" in detail. This technology is Star Trek in the making, where health scanning becomes a wand that passes over you detecting the smallest forces from your body. This section alone, I found worth the cost of the book as it has amazing applications even outside of healthcare industry in the way sensors realize and measure the world. The authors also describe in detail three healthcare case studies that took me through the product realization of wireless sensors from ethnographic modeling to clinical problem statement to validation and deployment. I recommend this for anyone wanting to understand how to take a health care problem and solve it with innovative wireless sensor networks.
