Narrow band internet of things prototype development of emergency medical services using narrow band internet of things
Keywords:NB-IoT, Medical Services, Tracking equipment component
This project is the development of the emergency medical service system using Narrow band Internet of Things (NB-IoT) . The system has 2 parts, the first is a hardware device that receives the location coordinates and heart rate of the patient while press button when ask for help and to deliver information. The information send to the registered hospital, send notifications to relatives via the Line application and forward the information to the database of the hospital. The hardware equipment consists of an Arduino board connected to the NB-IoT with a GPS module, a heart pulse sensor and a push button module. The developed Web applications extracted the coordinates of the patient from the database to display to the relevant users and accessed to the patient information. The users can be divided into 5 types: hospitals, ambulances drivers, patients, patient’s relatives and administrator. The NB-IoT used as data transmission technology due to low energy consumption and can send-receive signals efficiently even indoors.
