Employing Multi-Modal Sensors for Personalised In-Home Health Monitoring

People Involved

Project Description

A studentship to develop software which will analyse data collected by sensors in smart homes in an assisted living environment to
help residents live more independent lives for longer.

Key elements are identification of patterns in the data that allow us to create representations from the low- level, raw sensor data that capture the residents’ activities and behaviours of daily living.
These will be assembled into personalised daily and weekly profiles.

Analysis of these profiles allows us to both identify changing trends in the resident’s activities over time and to make comparisons with data collected form other similar residents.
