5.1.2 M2M interactions
The diabetic healthcare solution model is an IoE solution that can serve as a prototype for other health monitoring companies. When developing an IoE solution, it is important to design a model before creating a prototype.
Modeling an IoE solution begins by understanding the potential M2M, M2P, and P2P interactions. Figure 1 shows an initial model of traffic signal control for the health monitoring company’s mobile patient treatment center. When sensors indicate that a mobile patient treatment center is approaching an intersection, and the signal is red, the signal is changed to green to allow the mobile patient treatment center to reach John faster. This decision does not need to be made by a person, nor does the required information (to make the decision) need to be sent to the cloud. Data concerning traffic patterns, congestion, and emergency signal interruptions are sent to the cloud for storage and analysis periodically.
Another example of M2M interactions that may take place in this healthcare solution model is the interaction between the health monitoring company system and the electronic lock that is on John’s front door. For medical personnel to enter his home when they arrive, the health monitoring company system sends a one-time-use code to the lock, shown in Figure 2.
