Abstract

This paper describes a multimodal platform dedicated to in-home healthcare monitoring. This platform consists in three heterogeneous and complementary systems which are designed to provide a sense of safety and connectedness for those being monitored. In this article we present a detailed description of the multiple sensors used to remotely monitor elderly or a patient health. These are: a set of microphones suitably placed in the home, a wearable device and a set of infrared sensors. This platform is remotely used by the medical staff in order to help them to take the right decision about the patient and/or elderly situation. It has a couple of great advantages. First, its good acceptance by the end-users since it is less intrusive than other healthcare systems. Second, it is reliable and robust since it performs the fusion of outputs of three complementary healthcare systems.
