|摘要:||Telemonitoring and remote healthcare are two ICT techniques promise to deliver cost effective long-term healthcare services to the aging population worldwide. Anticipating an emerging market opportunity, NCTU Kannon project team is creating Custos, an open composeable platform for developing remote on-demand healthcare applications using smart phones and wireless sensor networks. Camps' is integrated readily with Internet web services and UPnP digital-home platform so that it can be used to detect abnormal health conditions through multisensor data fusion, adapt environment conditions to user needs, dispatch medical alerts and instigate remedial actions via SMS/RSS communication. Moreover, Custos is easy to program because it uses Sun SPOT and Squawk Java J2ME as its sensor/actuator hub. In this position paper, we present the design principles, system architecture and operation concepts of Custos as well as a pilot plan for clinical trials in the Geriatric Psychiatry Ward of Wei-Gong Memorial Hospital in Miaoli, Taiwan.|
