In clinical practice, a wide variety of sensor modalities are used to monitor the condition of patients, e.g. during a surgical intervention. Currently, data transmission is usually tethered to a local computing unit. As part of the BMBF-funded joint project 6G-life, a testbed is to be created in which next-generation wireless smart sensors will be interconnected within an intelligent network. The use of the 6G network concept as a consistent advancement of the current 5G and 4G standards opens up a multitude of new possibilities for patient monitoring. Dynamic data routing can be used, for example, to decentralize complex analysis functions in a resource-optimized manner or to present data to the end user in a situation-adapted manner.
