【物流讲坛】Towards Interoperability of IoT-based Health Care platforms: the INTER-Health use case
主讲人：Prof. Giancarlo Fortino
The talk proposes a novel approach to support interoperability between different IoT platforms with a particular focus on the healthcare context and applications. A novel IoT-based healthcare platform, supporting decentralized and mobile monitoring of assisted livings in highly heterogeneous contexts, can be obtained by integrating two already existing heterogeneous, non-interoperable IoT platforms (BodyCloud, e-Care, UniversAAL) according to the strategy proposed in the ongoing INTER-IoT (Horizon 2020) European project. A specific lifestyle monitoring use case, named INTER-Health, will be used to guide and validate such integration process in order to show the potential of the presented solution in terms of faster detection and correction of wrong lifestyles or critical healthcare situations.
