Abstract

The authors’ project has been developing some life monitoring systems for elderly people living alone in rural areas. The developments and experiments of the life monitoring systems were carried out for Kawai village, Shiwa town and Tono city at Iwate prefecture in Japan. Based on these experiences, this work describes the information obtained and the issues which need to be resolved in the construction of a useful and successful life monitoring system.
