Abstract text:
The experts of the pervasive systems do say that these systems will be developed in two steps: a first step comprising of relatively small applications and a second step comprising in the engineering of a complex system. This paper can be included in the research work related to the first step. The proposed idea is intending to allow for the aged people to remain a longer time in their own homes, having meanwhile the benefits of proper assistance. The proposed method has been engineered in order to ensure the aged peoples’ intimacy, by replacing the human surveillance by continuous sensor based surveillance. Whenever there is an accident or an unusual event or activity in the monitored home, the system will transmit alerts directly to the set mobile phones. The result generated by the research work that lays at the basis of the present paper is the realization of a pervasive system in order to monitor the home of one or more aged people and to transmit alerts to mobile phones when an unusual behavior is detected. Although this pervasive system supposes the use of a lot of sensors, its advantages for the aged people do recommend its use.
Key Words:
pervasive systems; possibility theory; activity recognition; health care.
