A Real-time System for In-home Activity Monitoring of Elders
Metadata[+] Show full item record
In this paper, we propose a real-time system for in-home activity monitoring and functional assessment for elder care. We describe the development of the whole system which could be used to assist the independent living of elders and improve the efficiency of eldercare practice. With this system, data is collected, silhouettes extracted, features further analyzed and visualized into graphs from which eldercare professionals are able to understand massive video monitoring data within a short period of time. Our experimental results demonstrate that the proposed system is efficient in indoor elder activities monitoring and easily utilized by eldercare professionals.
