Abstract

The increase of temperature on earth's surface in recent years has significantly affected the health of humans, where the concept of heat stroke has become a disturbing situation, especially if we consider the increase in deaths caused by this condition. The effects caused by problems related to high temperatures have been of interest for studies where the technology can have an important role for the solution of the same ones. The present work shows the design of a system employing temperature and heartbeat sensors using IoT concept for detection heat stroke early in children, elderly people and adults of productive age exposed to high temperatures and high humidity in the southeast of Mexico. The results show that the system proposed is efficient and practically usable in life real.
