The goal of the project is to develop a system to help people remotely monitor an elder family member that lives alone in a non-intrusive style.

Problem Definition[edit]

This project aims to develop a system to help people remotely monitor an elder family member that lives alone in a non-intrusive style.

Background[edit]

The aging population of the world presents enormous monitoring challenge for those who wish to be independent. We even don't know the daily activity of our parents and we can't react as soon as possible when the senior citizens are in danger. with these conditions we cannot keep safety of the senior. As a result an idea emerges in our mind. We establish a system which is affordable and easy to monitor the senior citizen by measuring the power usage and the movement of the person to collect the date and response to the clients' phones in few seconds. A summary of this information will be sent to the cloud which we can analyze and improve our product later.

Design Considerations[edit]

    • What exactly do we do?
  • Our goal is to design a system that can monitor a person in a remote and discreet way.
  • The design is mainly based on developing the Arduino board, which is cheap and supported by cross-platform.

2) Who is our target audience?

  • Elderly who wish to be more independent and those who are worried about them.

3) What are their pain points?

  • Cannot take care of their elder family member who lives independent.
  • Most of the monitor systems on the market are based on audio/video recorder. Although this monitoring method is very efficient, but it will also let the person being watched feel uncomfortable.

4) How will our product or service remedy the issue?

  • A remote interface is available.
  • Use ultrasonic sensor, current transformer and other prototypes of devices to replace of audio and video monitoring methods. And also, the devices are designed as much small as we can, so that they won’t disturb the movement in the house.
  • Our system is comprised of multiple small devices that can be placed in high traffic areas and not intrude in the users’ daily life.
  • This system is affordable
