Falls are one of the most important problems for frail and elderly people living independently. Early detection of falls is vital to provide a safe and active lifestyle for elderly. In this paper, signals produced by sound and passive infrared (PIR) sensors are simultaneously analyzed to detect suddenly falling elderly people. A typical room in a supportive home can be equipped with sound and PIR sensors. Hidden Markov models are trained for regular and unusual activities of an elderly person and a pet for each sensor signal. Decisions of HMMs can be fused together to reach a final decision.

Ozbey B.; Erturk V.B.; Kurc O.; Altintas, A.; Demir H.V. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2016)In this paper, simultaneous multi-point wireless sensing is proposed and demonstrated via multiple sensors in nested split-ring resonator (NSRR) geometry coupled to a single illuminator antenna. In this passive multi-point ...
Automated evaluation of physical therapy exercises using multi-template dynamic time warping on wearable sensor signals Yurtman, A.; Barshan, B. (Elsevier Ireland Ltd, 2014)We develop an autonomous system to detect and evaluate physical therapy exercises using wearable motion sensors. We propose the multi-template multi-match dynamic time warping (MTMM-DTW) algorithm as a natural extension ...
Yurtman A.; Barshan B. (MDPI AG, 2017)Most activity recognition studies that employ wearable sensors assume that the sensors are attached at pre-determined positions and orientations that do not change over time. Since this is not the case in practice, it is ...
