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.

f5-sensors-14-02397: Simplified floor plan.

Mentions: In the simplified floor plan of the Trauma center (Figure 5), four ZIPMS frontend routers are needed for every floor and only one frontend router (indicating as B in Figure 5) is sufficient to connect to all the other three frontend routers. As a result, the frontend router B serves as a parent of the other three frontend routers and a three layer sub-tree network including ZIPMS handheld has been set up.
