Heat Stroke Prevention Wearable Based in Internet of Things (IOT)
Keywords:Heat Stroke Detector,, Internet of Things, smartphone, temperature
This study is to introduce the development of a new alerting system for parents about children exposure to risk related to heat stroke. The smart heat stroke detector was created with the intention of measuring the internal temperature of the human body, which is closely linked to cases of heat stroke. Heat stroke is caused by the body overheating, which usually occurs as a result of being exposed to or exerting physical effort in high temperatures. Usually, the foremost genuine of warm damage and warm stroke and can happen in case the body temperature rises to 40 °C (104 F) or higher. The methodology adopted for this sub project is implementing the Internet of Things (IoT) system and embedding the interface hardware into smartphone system software. This device connects to the network provider to display information the device gathers from the environment through sensors. A gateway enables cloud services to be accessed by devices that are not directly linked to the Internet. The results obtained undeniably implicit that the body temperature increased significantly when children too expose to the environment. Thus, the importance of this device evaluated through lecturers, parents and students perspectives was 90% respectively. The resulting system was also low in power and cost, non-invasive, and provided real time monitoring. It is also easy to use and provides accurate measurements. In conclusion, the study of this proposal will assist in the reduction of heatstroke among potential children in the near future in Malaysia.
