Collaboration between the IEEE-SA and MIG has already resulted in the formation of the IEEE P2700 working group on standards for sensor performance parameter definitions. "Telemedicine, eHealth, and IoT technologies are advancing rapidly," said Herbert Bennett, IEEE Electron Devices Society sponsor chair of the IEEE P2700 WG, executive advisor at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and a NIST Fellow. "With its vast experience and expertise, the IEEE-SA was able to move at a fast pace to identify standards and associated measurements required for accelerating the commercialization of healthcare MEMS as one component of the Internet of Things."
"eHealth and IoT not only complement each other, but together they will completely change person-to-person, human-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications for the benefit of society," said Konstantinos Karachalios, managing director, IEEE-SA.
