A new healthcare architecture using IoV technology for continuous health monitoring system


Technology development has improved to its extent for mobile monitoring that mainly concentrates on a new trend that named as the Internet of Vehicles (IoV).A large number of researchers and organizations are attracted by this technological development that promises to be huge commercial interest. Several health monitoring devices were developed for the purpose of humans to identify themselves about their health problems and state of the situation about their health. This paper proposes a new architecture design for the healthcare that mainly concentrates on heart diseases using the IoV technology. Here, the continuous health monitoring device is used to monitor heart-related diseases that connected with IoV for obtaining a new way to provide and gather information about their health condition and updated automatically to the IoV based ambulance and the reports are updated to doctors using the same IoV technique. The architecture explains the several protocols that were used for communication, managing and analysis of data and transmitting from vehicle to device.
