Body-to-Body: The Future of the Social Network

Queen’s University Belfast (QUB) researchers have developed wearable sensors that could create new ultra-high bandwidth mobile Internet infrastructures and reduce the density of mobile phone base stations. The researchers say the technology could lead to vast improvements in mobile gaming, remote healthcare, the precision monitoring of athletes, and real-time tactical training in team sports. The QUB researchers are studying how small sensors, carried by members of the public in next-generation smartphones, could communicate with each other in an extensive body-to-body network. “The availability of body-to-body networks could bring great social benefits, including significant healthcare improvements through the use of body-worn sensors for the widespread, routine monitoring and treatment of illness away from medical centers,” says QUB’s Simon Cotton.
