In this paper we propose an agent-based approach for the integration of building networks (BNs) and body sensor networks (BSNs). Such an integration has the potential to enable a novel set of smart environments for ambient assisted livings further enhancing the concept of smart buildings. Specifically, inhabitants of buildings who are equipped with a BSN can expose their real and virtual sensed data to the BN that can use them to effectively support differentiated services: people

The proposed approach currently uses a gateway developed in JADE interfacing BNs based on the BMF framework with BSNs based on the SPINE framework. A system use case is shown that elucidates the BN/BSN integration based on the agent gateway. Finally, an evaluation of the overhead introduced by the defined application-level solution is also provided.
