Monitoring behavior in home using a smart fall sensor and position sensors.

1st Annual International Conference On Microtechnologies in Medicine and Biology, 2000.

Author: Noury, N., Herve, T., Rialle, V., Virone, G., Mercier, E., Morey, G., Moro, A., Porcheron, T.
Type: Conference Paper
Year: 2000

Abstract:

The authors developed a system for remotely monitoring human behavior during daily life at home, to improve the security and the quality of life. The activity was monitored through infrared position sensors and magnetic switches. For the falls detection the authors had to develop a smart sensor. The local communications were performed using RF wireless links to reduce the cabling and to allow mobility of the person. An application software performs data exploitation locally but it also performs remote data transmission through the network. This project aims at expanding the telecare solution to a larger population of elderly people who are presently forced to live in hospices.
