This paper aims to design and implement low-cost real-time patient vital sign monitoring in moving ambulance that provides patient’s clinical data to doctors well in advance so the doctors are well prepared on the arrival of patient and also do further research to protection of human life and to implement technology for social cause. The system is developed such that it will transmit the essential details of a person to the hospital personnel. Also, camera-aided interaction between the doctor and the patient provided by this system also provides important information about patient condition in ambulance; the doctor can also interact with the patient attendant in ambulance and other hospital staff, surgeons, and doctors in case of emergency and give them instructions on the required immediate treatment for the patient on his/her arrival at hospital. In addition to this, the algorithms are designed to detect abnormalities in patient conditions and to create alerts. This work is implemented at VNR VJIET, Hyderabad as a part of UGC funded Research project.
