ABSTRACT
This paper presents a ZigBee In-Patient Monitoring system embedded with a new ZigBee mobility management solution. The system enables ZigBee device mobility in a fixed ZigBee network. The usage, the architecture and the mobility framework are discussed in details in the paper. The evaluation shows that the new algorithm offers a good efficiency, resulting in a low management cost. In addition, the system can save lives by providing a panic button and can be used as a location tracking service. A case study focused on the Princes of Wales Hospital in Hong Kong is presented and findings are given. This investigation reveals that the developed mobile solutions offer promising value-added services for many potential ZigBee applications.

f3-sensors-14-02397: ZiM2 frontier.

Mentions: The ZiM2 frontier is designed for ZIPMS frontend routers and works in harmony with the location database to provide location updating and paging services. The location databases reside in distributed locations of a hospital as shown in Figure 1 carry the location information of all ZIPMS handhelds. ZiM2 frontier will update the location information when a ZIPMS frontend router accepts association request from ZIPMS handheld. If ZIPMS pages a specific handheld, its location information must be obtained from the database beforehand. The detailed operation of ZiM2 frontier is shown in Figure 3.
