B-HandDS (BSN-enabled Handshake Detection System) is a handshake detection system based on a SPINE-enabled BSN that is composed of a mobile base station (BS) and a wrist-wearable, 3-axial accelerometer-equipped wireless sensor node.

The nodes communicate with the base station only when a potential handshake-like movement is detected. Moreover, the sampling on the sensor node is activated only when people (BSNs) in sufficient proximity of each other exchange the networking data. The potential handshake-like classification algorithm execute on the node side while the collaborative true handshake detection is performed on the mobile BS and fuses the results from the on-node classifiers.
