Abstract: The monitoring of the daily life of ageing people is a research topic widely explored by several authors, which they presented different points of view. The different research studies related to this topic have been performed with mobile devices and smart environments, combining the use of several sensors and techniques in order to handle the recognition of Activities of Daily Living (ADL) that may be used to monitor the lifestyle and improve the life's quality of the ageing people. However, the use of the mobile devices has several limitations, including the low power processing and the battery life. This paper presents some different points of view about the limitations, combining them with a research about use of a mobile application for the recognition of activities. At the end, we conclude that the use of lightweight methods with local processing in mobile devices is the best method to the recognition of the ADL of ageing people in order to present a fast feedback about their lif estyle. Finally, for the recognition of the activities in a restricted space with constant network connection, the use of smart environments is more reliable than the use of mobile devices. (More)
