Abstract: Future e-Health systems will consist of low-power on-body wireless sensors attached to mobile users that interact with a ubiquitous computing environment. This kind of system needs to be able to configure itself with little or no user input, but more importantly, it is required to adapt autonomously to changes such as user movement, device failure, and the addition or loss of services. We propose the Self-Managed Cell architecture for such systems, and outline how the architecture supports an e-Health application in which on-body sensors are used to monitor a patient living in their home.
