Abstract: A WBAN (Wireless Body Area Network) allows connecting several sensor nodes into one sensor network. Each sensor node can be provided with a dedicated sensor. In case of fall detection, the physical movements of the body, which show characteristic patterns typical for a falling body, are used to generate a warning signal. Physical movements of the body can be measured by accelerometers. Today there is a lot of progress in the area of MEMS accelerometers. They are very small and hence can get integrated in WBAN sensor nodes. This paper proposes a setup and evaluation of a WBAN with multiple accelerometer nodes for an application in fall detection.
