Abstract: Japan is becoming a super-aged society and the population of elderly people is increasing, although the overall population in Japan is decreasing. In order to support a safe and secure autonomous life and to improve the quality of life for elderly people living alone, the development of monitoring and life-support systems is a pressing matter. In this paper, we propose a monitoring system that would enable relatives and other interested parties to easily monitor the daily life of elderly people from afar by using mobile devices. With such a monitoring system, it is very important to protect the privacy of the people being monitored. The proposed monitoring system seeks to approximately but recognizably reconstruct the status of elderly people's daily life by using computer graphics (CG) based on information obtained from various types of sensors, mainly consisting of acoustic sensors such as microphone arrays that are utilized to track the walking patterns of elderly people b ased solely on the sound of their footsteps.
