Abstract

A heterogeneous wireless network to support a Home Health System is presented. This system integrates a set of smart sensors which are designed to provide health and security to the elder citizen living at home. The system facilitates privacy by performing local computation, it supports heterogeneous devices and it provide a platform and initial architecture for exploring the use of sensors with elderly people in the Information Technology for Assisted Living and Home project. The goal of this project is to provide alerts to care givers in the event of an accident or acute illness, and enable remote monitoring by authorized and authenticated care givers.
