Abstract

This work presents the development of an assistive system for the elderly in their home environment. The purpose of this system is to provide them support and extend their autonomy in order to extend life expectancy and improve quality of life when living at home. This work explores various technological innovations and technology building blocks, such as open software and open hardware. In this work, a low-cost and small-scale ubiquitous system was developed that does not disrupt the prevailing conditions in the elderly’s home. Also, a part of this work has been developed, keeping in mind elderly people suffering from dementia, offering a sufferer-centered solution.
