The modern healthcare industry is emerging with the technology of Internet of Things (IoT) [1]. In our paper submitted to IEEE Sensors 2018 [2], we propose and demonstrate a wearable wireless medical sensor network towards the Internet of Patients. The implementation consists of a master sensor board, a sensor node and a gateway for subject's health monitoring, as shown in Fig. 1. The sensor node, with a temperature sensor and a green light photoplethysmography (PPG) sensor, is targeted to be attached to the subject's chest to measure the main vital signs, including heart rate (HR), respiration rate (RR) and body temperature. The data from the sensor node are processed by a microcontroller (MCU) on the master board, and transmitted by a Bluetooth low energy (BLE) module to the gateway (a mobile phone or a laptop).
