NFC and IoT-based electronic health card for elementary students using sensor fusion method

NFC and IoT-based electronic health card for elementary students using sensor fusion method In the context of overcoming malnutrition in elementary school children and increasing public awareness of this issue, the Indonesian Government has created a “Card for Healthy School Children” (KMS-AS) program in the form of a paper health card.

Abstract

In the context of overcoming malnutrition in elementary school children and increasing public awareness of this issue, the Indonesian Government has created a “Card for Healthy School Children” (KMS-AS) program in the form of a paper health card. However, currently, the KMS-AS record data are still written on paper, which is less effective in terms of the health process. An integrated measuring device and an online data-recording system are needed to promote children’s health and facilitate access and transfer of data from one place to another. This study aims to develop NFC and IoT-based KMS-AS using sensor fusion method.Design/methodology/approachThe results of this study show that an integrated measuring device for weight, height, body temperature and Spo2 level can be connected with mobile and Web applications using IoT technology, facilitating data recording and monitoring of children’s nutritional status. The sensor fusion method was used for the classification of nutritional status and health status, based on the results of measurement tools. Near field communication (NFC) technology was used to facilitate user identification when making measurements.FindingsThe results show that KMS-AS can facilitate classification of nutritional status and children's health status. Measurement and classification data can be monitored via Web and mobile applications. The accuracy of height, weight, body temperature and Spo2 measurements was 98.21%, 98.59%, 98.93% and 98.93%, respectively.Originality/valueIn this research, the authors successfully produced a system using sensor fusion method for measuring body weight, height, temperature and Spo2 level, which is integrated and can be connected to mobile applications and the Web using the IoT and NFC.
