Abstract
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) are a significant technology that has a considerable attraction in many areas, particularly in health sector. On the other hand wireless mesh networks, which are an extension of LAN, have far better range and also reduce the amount of cabling needed to connect to the backbone network. In this paper a scheme that is Wireless Sensor based Mesh Networks, which is an integration of the above two technologies has been proposed. This scheme also incorporates agent technology in its functioning. A hierarchical agent based layered architecture of this scheme, meant for health applications, have also been discussed. The functioning and the coordinating roles of the agents - both static and mobile, in such an architecture has been fully explained and the implementation of the scheme for healthcare application with the template in PDA using J2ME as a first step as also been presented.....
