Abstract

This paper describes a new platform for monitoring elderly people living alone. An architecture is proposed, it includes three subsystems, with various types of sensors for different sensing modalities incorporated into a smart house. The originality of this system is the combination and the synchronization of three different televigilance modalities for acquiring and recording data. The paper focuses on the acquisition step of the system, usage and point out possibilities for future work.
