ABSTRACT
Embedded devices that sense physiological data have existed for some time but have gained renewed interest as a result of the effects of Moore's Law and the proliferation of wireless radios and interoperable protocols. Applications as diverse as healthcare and consumer entertainment, as well as the way with which we interact with technology, could be influenced by body sensors. The authors examine the technology driving body-sensor applications and highlight the current challenges in wireless interfaces, circuit design, and embedded software management.
