The project’s general objective is the study of the possible forms of interconnection between different hardware and software components (architectures) to allow monitoring of different aspects related to improving the health and wellbeing of older people, as well as the implementation of a pilot system integrating both hardware architecture designed as software modules. This overall objective can be particularized in the following specific objectives:

  1. Study and analysis of possible hardware architectures, application scenarios and services (existing) for monitoring different health data, and the use of them, with the aim of detecting critical situations and support for improving the quality of life of older people.
  2. Construction of a hardware architecture that allows to work with a real environment for the development of the software elements. Among the hardware components of the physical architecture could highlight the presence of: Arduino boards to control various types of sensors embedded in clothing that can carry the adult; bluetooth drivers for communication with smart mobile devices also equipped with this technology, and finally , installed on remote servers which communicate with the mobile system.
  3. Development of software components, including: the built-in Arduino to capture sensory data; intelligent components installed on the mobile device dedicated to some of the tasks of sensory data fusion, processing and transmission of information, and, Finally, intelligent components installed on the server to enable the processing of the received data and access for different user profiles (a profile for the physician and another for the patient).
