This paper describes the combination of an expert system for bio-information with smart devices using a wireless sensor network. A wireless bio-sensor module acquires physiological signals, including electrocardiogram, heart rate, heart rate variability (HRV) and autonomic nervous system activity. The smart device transmits the bio-information over a wireless network to a real-time expert consultation function for analysis, storage and decision making. An artificial neural network algorithm detects the HRV parameters and examines them for features of diabetes. A centralized internet information service platform can interrogate the remote client at any time for its bio-information. In addition, the system platform can compare data files. Bio-information and diabetes information can trigger timely alert messages. The system described in this paper could be the basis for a ubiquitous mobile physiological monitor.
