Project Description

Caring for the elderly is a growing challenge for Australian society. This project addresses concerns regarding the
wellbeing of seniors living at home by modeling their daily routines to detect significant changes due to functional
decline or the onset of illness. These models will be integrated into a personalized in-home monitoring system that
also detects instantaneous adverse events, such as falls. This system will include a novel inexpensive sensor
bundle comprising unintrusive sensors, and decision procedures that determine whether and how to communicate
with seniors and carers to deliver information and alerts. The effectiveness and acceptance of these technologies
will be evaluated on a diverse population of seniors and carers.
