An IoT-Based Framework for Elderly Remote Monitoring
MetadataShow full item record
This Paper presents an Internet of Things (IoT) based framework to monitor ECG for biometric recognition and acceleration for fall detection. To this end, an-IoT based Remote Elderly Monitoring System (REMS) platform is described. REMS consists of a Shimmer3TM device transmitting physiological signal wirelessly to a nearby gateway which routes the data to a remote IoT-platform, able to accommodate dynamically changing configurations. The Shimmer firmware has been modified to send data based on the compressive sensing theory in order to ameliorate energy consumption in addition of real data, and the analysis and processing are done locally on a heterogeneous multicore edge device in order to solve latency issues related to cloud reliance. Subsequently the framework has been designed to handle the different parameter settings and multiple scenarios in a user-friendly way. Furthermore, it allows the user to monitor physiological data and acquire some feedback related to their analysis. Depending on a scenario (energy save, secure communication) the system can be configured manually or automatically to monitor ECG or acceleration data and displays them, it can also identify the subject based on ECG recognition and detect fall if it occurs. - 2019 IEEE.
