Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Emerging TechnologiesICET, S. 1-6, 2017. IEEE.


Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (VANETs) offer a wide variety of applications for intelligent transportation. VANET facilitates the drivers by generating alerts for hazards, warning and information messages related to traffic in real time. Health monitoring is one of the advanced applications in Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) for health care in hospitals and home. VANET adds the comfort of communication between medical professionals and patients by facilitating the monitoring of patient while driving. This paper proposes an application prototype that uses WBAN for patient monitoring while driving. It analysis the health-data and generates alert messages to the care taker for emergency services with location information through VANET. The objective of this work is to increase flexibility and mobility to the long term patients (diabetes, heart/Blood pressure patients etc.,), elderly and special people (deaf and mute). The designed application for emergency alert systems uses WBAN and VANET for the target group. It provides simple and easy to use application interface to the customers.
