Abstract: Internet of things (IOT) is a network or an ecosystem of interconnected items embedded with electronics, software and sensors connected with the internet based on stipulated protocols. One of the defining feature of IoT in the present day is that they are no longer exclusively tied to major providers. Smaller networks can exist if they are practical. IoT creates these small networks between its system devices. Devices have become smaller, cheaper and robust overtime. Medical sensors measuring various physiological parameters of the body holds greater advantage in exploiting the concept and working of IoT. In this paper we employ body temperature sensor, pulse sensor, ECG and GPS to track the location of patient. The values of the above sensors are uploaded to the cloud via Wi-Fi module. A graph of these values is plotted and analysed using IoT forum called ‘thingspeak.com’ providing dedicated channels to each user logging in with a unique user-ID and Password. Data can be any time exported into CSV, XML and JSON format.
Keywords: Internet of things (IOT), body temperature sensor, pulse sensor, ECG, GPS, CSV, XML and JSON format.
