Abstract

The world trends toward aging society because of low total fertility rate and long human life, and we have to face the issue that youth in the feature will have heavier load to take care of the elderly living than that at present. In order to solve such problem, cyber physical system is implemented, which is a collaborating system by integrating computational elements and physical entities. In this work, we develop the framework of the elderly care supervision system based on sensor network, and it is verified in a long-term caring facility for dementia caring. Moreover, user interface runs the developed software. Caregiver, family member, and system manager can manipulate the friendly user interface to obtain information of the elderly activity and the anomaly. The resultants will demonstrate that how activity recognition and elderly living analysis are implemented by application program runs on mobile device.
