Intelligent system for assisting elderly people at home

J. Pascual, M.A. Sanz-Bobi, D. Contreras

Nowadays the number of elderly people in our society is increasing thanks to continuous and important advances related to health care. The ideal situation for these elderly people is to spend as much time as possible enjoying their life within their family and social environment, without the need to abandon their homes to go live in specialized centres as long as their physical health permits. This paper describes an architecture of pro-active intelligent agents in which the main objective is to extend the amount of time as much as possible that these elderly people can reside in their own homes by means of providing continuous vigilance of certain parameters concerning daily activities which possibly could be risky by facilitating reminders to complete specific tasks, by easing communication with the exterior world, and in the case that it is necessary, by automatically calling for emergency services.


Keywords: Multi-agent system, risks at the homes of elderly people, intelligent system, human activities monitoring.
