Abstract

The problems faced by most senior citizens living alone at homes along with their poor health conditions have motivated the development of a home monitoring system which aims at improving their wellness and health-care. The purpose of this system is to monitor the physiological parameters in real time, together with the help from a computer vision module. Several research works on this area have been conducted, however, the combination of image processing and wearable sensors have not been widely reported. The daily activities and health parameters are to be further analyzed. In case of any abnormal or emergency situations, alarm will be triggered and urgent message will be sent to a medical doctor.
