摘 要：Body Area Networks (BANs) are a powerful technology for supporting many human-centered real-world systems. They are currently having a significantly increasing research interest thanks to their potential to enable continuous and real-time human monitoring at low cost by guaranteeing ease of deployment, fault tolerance, and non-invasive operations. Most of the current BSN systems have been developed in the health-care domain. However, wearable systems have great capabilities for diversified application domains, which are gaining more and more attention in the last years: e-Social, e-Sport and e-Fitness, e-Entertainment and interactive computer games, and e-Factory.
In this seminar, we focus on Cloud-Assisted Body Area Networks (CABANs). CABANs have the great potential to support BAN community large-scale applications. After introducing the state-of-the-art of CABANs, we focus on the BodyCloud project (http://bodycloud.dimes.unical.it). We describe the architecture of BodyCloud, present its methodology to develop large-scale BAN applications and show several case studies (ECGaaS, RehabaaS, ActivityaaS) developed by using BodyCloud.
在报告中，首先，我们将主要关注云辅助体域网（CABANs）。云辅助体域网具有巨大的潜力来拓宽体域网的大规模应用。其次，在介绍完当前CABANs的发展动态后，我们将介绍体感云项目(http://bodycloud.dimes.unical.it)。报告将首先描述其结构，然后展示关于如何开发大规模BAN应用的方法论，最后展示几种运用了体感云技术的研究实例(ECGaaS, RehabaaS, ActivityaaS)。
