Abstract

In this paper, we present a novel mechanism to foresee the well-being of elderly through monitoring and functional assessment of the daily activities with the help of sensor data fusion. Two wellness indices are defined to determine the wellness of the elderly in performing their daily activities. Home monitoring system is targeted for the elderly people to provide a safe, secured, less cost and privacy system in assessing the ability to perform basic behaviours. Developed system was tested at various elderly homes instead of test bed and the results are encouraging.
