As mentioned earlier, GroupNet is also an attempt to fill the gap that currently exists between local area network and recent research work on body area network. We hope that GroupNet will also be able to act as a bridge between these two networks, providing secure data transfer, and will lead to more cohesive and seamless applications spanning from individuals to wider communities.
A UK-based consortium of companies, led by Zarlink Semiconductor, today announced plans to develop a means for converting energy from the human body to power implanted medical devices, including pacemakers, electrical stimulators, instrumented joints and body area network applications.
