Interoperability and Control Systems for Medical Cyber Physical Systems

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 215)


As quality of life is improving, a number of people pay attention to their health. Though the demand for medical services has been increased steadily, the number of doctors per capita increased only 2 % per year on average. In order to solve lack of caregiver, manufacturer of medical devices has tried to develop automatic medical systems. This system is called “Medical Cyber Physical Systems (MCPS)”. It is necessary to ensure interoperability between medical devices and closed loop system in order to automatic control. We consider IEEE 11073 to support interoperability between medical devices. We also introduce prototype platform that is based closed loop system in MCPS. This platform is our preliminary work to support interoperability between medical devices and compose a closed loop system which makes possible to control devices each other.
