◆ The Internet of Things-collaborative body sensor net-

works (CBSNs) integration: In the context of CBSNs,
it is relevant to recognize group activities. In elder
care centers, for example, it would be beneficial for
wheelchair users and caregivers to exchange information automatically, so as to relieve the workload
of caregivers.
