The anticipated increase in the world population, people’s desire to live at home for as long as possible and the shortage of health-care professionals make the need to develop technological supports for people with chronic yet manageable conditions, to monitor and take care of their own health. The advancing wave of Internet-of-Things technologies holds immense promise to deliver such supports. In our work in the Smart-Condo project, we have been developing a sensor-based platform for non-intrusively monitoring people at home, analyzing the collected data to extract information about their activities, and generating support recommendations – for themselves and their care-givers. We have been experimenting with a variety of living-at-home scenarios, and different sensor types and user interfaces. In this presentation, I will review the architecture of our platform, our research methodology, and our findings, and I will point out some interesting challenges for future research.
