Abstract

In 5G Release 17 specific work items are dealing with medical applications. Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the adoption of mobile-health (m-health) and e-health. This paper proposes the implementation of a m-health framework supporting social distancing management. Experimental results show that by exploiting 5G connectivity and the computational power provided by an accelerated edge cloud, the proposed framework can perform social distancing verification faster than a user equipment (UE)-based deployment.
