Vol. 22  No. 4  pp. 603-612


Internet of things (IoT) is exceedingly permeating our daily lives and innovative solutions are being proposed to enrich our lives. In this paper we combine wearable IoT sensors and fog analytics to provide a solution for monitoring of diabetic patients. We report our system architecture and our experience in developing and testing a prototype based on this architecture. The system can be generalized into a patient-centric IoT eHealth ecosystem with a multi-layer architecture. There are several challenges related to our diabetics monitoring system such as data management, scalability, regulations, inter-operability, device-network-human interfaces, security and privacy.
