Design of an Embedded Platform for Patient Monitoring Applications Using μC/OS-II
Now a day’s lot of embedded platforms are available based on different controllers for patient monitoring applications. The major disadvantage of such systems are their disability to handle multiple tasks effectively. Real Time Operating Systems(RTOS) are well known for their multitask handling ability. So the design of embedded platforms by incorporating of a Real Time Operating Systems will improve the multitask handling capability of embedded platforms. So in this paper we propose a telemedicine embedded platform based on μC/OS-II RTOS and Atmega128 AVR microcontroller.
