This paper will describe the development of a proof of concept base station system for the home health care sector. An overview of problems and solutions are discussed and the core features of the system is presented. This system is a part of the ongoing research at the Pervasive Lab, Engineering College of Aarhus, Denmark and is a stepping stone toward an open health care framework and platform. At the current stage of development, this prototype system and the associated open communication protocol has proven to be quite efficient. 3 different and independent sensor types have been implemented and works accordingly. The zero configuration behavior of the base station detect nearby sensor via Bluetooth and automatically deploy all drivers.
