Abstract

In recent years there has been a rapidly increasing intensity of work going into investigating various methods of facilitating assisted living for the benefit of the elderly and those with difficulties in mobility. The paper describes one such effort which distinguishes itself from the rest by considering and describing a system with true commercial potential and thus significant social impact. Promising efforts in investigating and identifying the requirements for a system of smart monitoring and adaptive lifestyle pattern detection and analysis are described. An initial proposal for a system relying on remote monitoring using persistent communications technology and a centralized data gathering, analysis and decision making is presented and a prototype developed in facilitating initial investigations is described. Finally the vision for further developments in the near future is discussed.
