The main goal of this project was to develop a PDA based application to remotely control a Blood Pressure monitoring device. The main module of the application is a query processor which remotely queries the BP device for blood pressure readings. The data received is stored in a database (indexed by the timestamp and user id from whom the was measured) for future retrieval. The application also provides aggregation of BP data providing the average, min and max values of all the data collected in a session. The interface between the PDA and the BP device is done using Mica2 motes which are programmed using TinyOS.
