An Ontology-based Context-aware System for Smart Homes: E-care@home
TLDR
This paper presents a framework called E-care@home, consisting of an IoT infrastructure, which provides information with an unambiguous, shared meaning across IoT devices, end-users, relatives, health and care professionals and organizations.
SIMULATING DAILY ACTIVITIES IN A SMART HOME FOR DATA GENERATION
TLDR
The basic idea is to integrate the simulation of a sensorised apartment with human behaviour modelling based on constraint-based planning that produces a sequence of daily activities that exhibits the same relevant properties as data from a comparable real-world apartment.
Seeking Prevention of Cognitive Decline in Elders via Activity Suggestion by A Virtual Caregiver
TLDR
It is shown how the user experience can be enriched with an adaptive configuration encouraging socialization and cognitive training in an autonomous agent residing in the cloud and generating interventions based on users' data.
Open-Source Data Collection and Data Sets for Activity Recognition in Smart Homes
TLDR
A collection of software modules for data collection, labeling, and various reasoning tasks such as activity recognition, person counting, and configuration planning, and a series of data sets that were collected using the E-care@home system.
The MOVECARE Project: Home-based Monitoring of Frailty
TLDR
Here, it is described how home-based monitoring of frailty is addressed within MoveCare, specifically for the five Fried criteria.
Online Guest Detection in a Smart Home Using Pervasive Sensors and Probabilistic Reasoning
TLDR
A probabilistic approach able to estimate the number of persons in the environment at each time step based on the topology of the sensor network and the sensor activation pattern at this time point is presented.
Towards a Synergy of Qualitative Spatio-Temporal Reasoning and Smart Environments for Assisting the Elderly at Home∗
TLDR
This paper gives a description of how qualitative spatio-temporal reasoning can be used to create services for the inhabitants of a sensorized home, with an emphasis on elderly patients, and hence make their lives more comfortable and safe.
A Virtual Caregiver for Assisted Daily Living of Pre-frail Users
TLDR
This study suggests that the presence of the Virtual Caregiver encourages people to use the Movecare platform more consistently, which in turn could result in better monitoring and prevention of cognitive and physical decline.
A decision-theoretic planning approach for multi-robot exploration and event search
TLDR
A distributed decision-theoretic model called MAPING (Multi-Agent Planning for INformation Gathering), in which each agent computes a communication and an exploration strategy by assessing the relevance of an observation for another agent, and includes a forgetting mechanism to ensure that the event-exploration remains open-ended.
Context Recognition in Multiple Occupants Situations: Detecting the Number of Agents in a Smart Home Environment with Simple Sensors
Context-recognition and activity recognition systems in multi-user environments such as smart homes, usually assume to know the number of occupants in the environment. However, being able to count ...
