Abstract: Internet of Things (IoT) makes everything interconnected to communicate and perform tasks. Some IoT examples to quote are smart city, smart house, smart bus etc. The main focus of this paper is to make a survey and propose a system that automates bio-signal sensing in healthcare industry. The data which are recorded should be accurate and should reach the destination in time for decision making. This can be achieved by using precision microcontrollers enhanced with IoT and fog computing. Using IoT in healthcare industry makes these processes faster and more accurate. Keeping the existing systems in mind we propose system which is a combination of IoT and fog computing. The proposed system can be divided into 4 layers: data gathering, data transmission, data storage and data retrieval. Usage of proposed system in healthcare industry can improve the efficiency of transmitting vital data to healthcare centers during emergency.
