A memorandum of agreement has been signed by the IEEE Standards Association and MEMS Industry Group, initiating the development of standards for e-health and the Internet of Things.

The IEEE and MIG have created the IEEE P2700 working group to set parameters defining the sensor performance standard.

"Telemedicine, eHealth and IoT technologies are advancing rapidly," said Herbert Bennett, IEEE Electron Devices Society sponsor chair of the IEEE P2700 WG, and 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 commercialisation 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 IEEE-SA managing director Konstantinos Karachalios.
