A Reliable ICT Solution for Organ Transport Traceability and Incidences Reporting Based on Sensor Networks and Wireless Technologies



DCAI (), 2012 (), p.,
.,, 2012


This paper describes an ICT solution based on an intelligent onboard system which is able to trace the organs inside a medical van during delivery routes to the hospitals, without altering the carriers daily tasks. The intelligent onboard system is able to ensure the safety of the cargo by means of a sensor net-work who permanently evaluates their status. The van understands its environ-ment, including: its location, the temperature and the humidity of the transported organs; and can report incidences instantly via wireless communications to anyone interested. It is a non-intrusive solution which represents a successful experience of using smart environments in a viable way to resolve a real social and healthcare necessity
