Recognition of activities of daily living plays an important role in monitoring elderly people and helping caregivers in controlling and detecting changes in daily behaviors. Thanks to the miniaturization and low cost of Microelectromechanical systems (MEMs), in particular of Inertial Measurement Units, in recent years body-worn activity recognition has(More)
The paper proposed a cloud robotic solution for the healthcare management of senior citizens, to demonstrate the opportunity to remotely provide continuous assistive robotic services to a number of seniors regardless to their position in the monitored environment. In particular, a medication reminding, a remote home monitoring and an user indoor(More)
The goal of this study is to address two major issues that undermine the large scale deployment of smart home sensing solutions in people's homes. These include the costs associated with having to install and maintain a large number of sensors, and the pragmatics of annotating numerous sensor data streams for activity classification. Our aim was therefore(More)
This paper describes a system based on a robot, called KuBo, which relies on cloud resources to extend its capabilities for human interaction and environmental sensing to provide services for independent living. The robot uses text-to-speech and speech recognition services as well as an electronic agenda andweb resources to perform several tasks. Moreover(More)
The paper describes a generic Cloud Robotics teleoperation system which allows to control in real-time a robot (connected with a 4G network) having its video stream as feedback. The proposed system relies on the Azure Cloud Platform and on recent web technologies. Particularly, we present an use case experiment in which an operator in Slovakia controls a(More)
