Article
Sensors are increasingly being employed to determine different activities of a person living at home. Numerous sensors can be used to obtain a variety of information. While many sensors may be used to make a system, it is important to look into the availability, cost, installation, mechanism, and performance of sensors. This chapter investigates di...

The age span of elderly people is increasing and this trend may continue for another two decades. The independent living of elderly people are keen on fulfilling lives, but the self-regulating way of life involve with risks, such as weakening, memory loss or impaired judgment and falls that limit mobility. In particular, the daily home activity inv...
Article
In this study, we reported a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) based system for monitoring daily living activities of inhabitant and smart software including novel technique for determining wellness of the inhabitant based on activity usage of household appliances. We defined two new wellness functions to determine the status of the inhabitant in real-...
Article
Smart home monitoring target to improve comfort, quality of life, and safety by monitoring mobility and physiological parameters using wireless sensors. The wireless sensors in a network are capable of performing various tasks and sense many types of information for different applications. This technology has ample potential to change the way we li...
Article
The advancement of semiconductor fabrication technology and smart algorithms has allowed us to design and develop intelligent sensors with cognitive ability. Statistics reveal that in recent times the number of elderly people is increasing rapidly around the world and the situation is not going to ease in the foreseeable future. In this paper, we r...
Conference Paper
Due to better lifestyle than before people live longer now. There is a steady increase in number of elderly people around the world and it is expected that the situation is not going to change in future. A smart home monitoring system based on intelligent wireless sensors network has been developed to provide a safe, sound and secured living enviro...
Conference Paper
There are many issues in designing and implementing an intelligent wireless sensor network based smart home for monitoring the elderly. The smart home is based on a few smart and intelligent wireless sensors, which can be configured around a wireless ad-hoc network. The system will generate early warning message to care giver, when an unforeseen ab...

Full-text available
In this chapter, we are reporting a novel in-home monitoring system designed to for elder-care application. The statistics shows that there is increasing number of elderly people around the world and this isn’t going to change. We developed a smart system consists of optimum number of wireless sensors that includes current, bed, and water flow sens...
Conference Paper
This paper presents the design of an intelligent bed sensor that is part of a larger smart home monitoring system for the elderly. The sensor sub-system not only detects the mere presence of a person on the bed, it can precisely indicate the person's position on the bed. Initial test results are promising and it is envisaged that the sensor system...
Conference Paper
We describe a novel in-home monitoring system designed to for elder-care application. The statistics shows that there is increasing number of elderly people around the world and this isn't going to change. In developing contries like India, because of growing busy life style, many elderly people are being forced to live alone or put in a rest home...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this paper we present the impediments in designing and implementing a wireless sensor network based smart home for monitoring the elderly and to propose an optimal solution to circumvent the impediments. The smart home is based on a few smart and intelligent wireless sensors, which can be configured around a wireless ad-hoc network. The system w...
Conference Paper
Due to the advances in the field of communications networks there evolved, a very interesting and challenging area of wireless sensors networks, which is rapidly coming of age. These wireless sensors in the network are capable of performing various tasks and sense many types of information for various applications. These wireless sensor network tec...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
We are exploring the development of a smart digital home based on wireless sensors. The wireless sensors have more advantages when compared with the wired sensors as they are more flexible, portable, can be used in different places to remote monitor the various activities remotely. They even consume less power depending on their operation. Based on...
Article
In this paper we present the details of a system that has been designed and implemented to non-invasively monitor old people living by themselves in a home. The system works by monitoring the usage of electrical as well as non-electrical equipments in the home. A sensor unit (SU) is required for each device that needs to be monitored. It detects wh...
Conference Paper
The research and development work for a wireless sensors based home monitoring system, especially for old, ill or infirm people, has been reported earlier. The system is based on sensors which detect the usage pattern of electrical appliances, whether they are on or off and at what time of the day or night they are switched. To increase the versati...
Conference Paper
In modern civilization people live longer than before and it is expected that this increased longevity will be enjoyed in a safe, sound and secured living environment. But with increased of age mental abilities are reduced and there is a necessity of caregiver which may interfere with their privacy. In this research work, we target towards the deve...
Chapter
A smart home specifically for the elder people has been plannedto be developed using wireless sensors. The design intricacies andimplementation details of a novel Wireless Sensors systems has been targetedto achieve that. The system is designed to support people who wish to livealone but, because of old age, ill health or disability, there is some...
Article
Full-text available
A review of wireless sensors and sensor networks, especially for in-home monitoring of elderly people, has been presented in this paper. The characteristics of various sensors for monitoring applications have been studied. The requirements of the sensor for making a smart sensor network have been investigated. A typical in-house developed system fo...
