Activity-monitoring in Private Households for Emergency Detection: A Survey of Common Methods and Existing Disaggregable Data Sources

Sebastian Wilhelm

Abstract

Ambient-Assisted Living (AAL) technologies can enable the elderly people to live a self-determined life in their own home environment instead of hospitals and retirement homes for a longer period of time. Hence, AAL systems are not only used for everyday support but also for the detection of potential emergency situations and for triggering notification chains. For this purpose the people are usually continuously monitored within their residents by ambient or wearable sensors to detect deviations in their daily behavior. This work surveys common used technologies for Human Activity Recognition (HAR) / Human Presence Detection (HPD), which is the basis for emergency detection. Furthermore, by examining various home automation software, existing data sources from the residential infrastructure, are identified that would be suitable for detecting personal activities.
