Energy-saving is a very important issue in resent years. To provide a management platform of energy-saving in the digital home can save more power when using the home appliances. In this paper, we design a management platform for energy-saving based on open service gateway initiative (OSGi), remote management server (RMS) and home automatic network (HAN)(More)
The concept of smart homes (SH) has been extensively popularized, and there are a lot of technologies that need to be continuously utilized and integrated in such a concept. In this article, some applied problems of camera array (CA) in the SH are discussed and solved. Determining how to build an effective management method for CA in order to ensure that(More)
Elder lives are inconvenience, because they move slow, suffering from chronic diseases, bone sclerosis, atrophy of finger, vision aging, etc. How to provide a better user interface (UI) for elder is a very important issue. In this paper, we implement an automatic news text-to-speech broadcast system for mobility disabled elder. The RSS (rich site summary)(More)

Elder-care is a very important issue in many developed countries such as U.S., Japan, England and Taiwan. In this paper, we focus on the bed status detection (BSD) with single IP camera for the chronic ailment and act slowly elders in the elder-care center (EC). Based on simple and fast motion estimation (ME) and binary area matching (BAM) algorithms, we(More)

The H.264 provides various and useful features for improved coding efficiency and error robustness, but its encoder complexity is extremely high due to the computational time of ME (motion estimation) and mode decision of inter coding. In this paper, we propose a fast and simple class-based scheme to reduce the computational complexity of ME. The image in(More)
The concept of smart home (SH) is extensively popularized; there are a lot of technologies to be continuously utilized and integrated. In this paper, an applicability problem about camera array (CA) in the SH are discussed and solved. This problem is about how to build an effective management method for CA, to ensure that the user's privacy is not(More)
In the past years, the service of digital home almost focuses on the automatic surveillance, automatic controlling and health-care. Currently, how to provide an automatic interconnection and control for different devices on the heterogeneous home network is a very pressing problem. In this paper, we implement a systemic design to connect the heterogeneous(More)
