Persons with Lower-limb amputations experience movement restrictions resulting in worsening their life quality. Wearable sensors are often utilized to evaluate spatial and temporal qualities and kinetic parameters that provide the mechanism to create interactive monitoring of the amputee prosthesis system. Gait events and detection of the gait phase of amputee movement are essential to control the prosthetic devices of lower limbs.  This paper presents real-time monitoring to individuals with lower limb amputation by using a medical wireless sensor. However,  the proposed system used four medical sensor nodes (such as gait, temperature, the pressure of blood, blood oxygenation (SpO2) )for transmitted medical data by the   RFB 24  to the sink node to collected data and upload by   ESP32  to the Local cloud ( Raspberry pi 4)   by using   Wi-Fi network, then design the web application for enable the doctor monitor the patient (lower-limb amputation (LLA))  and provide the reporter to on each patient,  where local cloud provides the data to the web application. The conduction of this work is using one sink node to four nodes (patient) to reduce the data rate and the energy consumption. In this work, one IP to four medical sensor nodes lowers the data rate to 60%, and the energy consumption by the sensing nodes is lowered by 20% that using one IP instead of using five IP reduce the size of the transmitted packet.

This paper describes the construction of a rover mobile robot which is used to
follow the resultant optimal path from the global path planning technique. A remote
computer is used to control the motion of the mobile robot and to upload the data of
the path wirelessly. The control (positioning and directing) of the robot is based on the
readings of two wheel encoders. The current direction and position of the robot are
calculated relatively to its previous direction and position. The control algorithm is
capable to move the mobile robot in order to follow a certain path. The software of the
control algorithm is executed using PIC microcontroller. To prove the efficiency of the
control algorithm, this algorithm applied on the constructed mobile robot to move it in
real world environment between different start and end points. The constructed mobile
robot shows that it can follow the required path and reach the target within specified
error percent.
