  author={Aryan Kaushik and Ramandeep Singh},
  journal={International Journal of Computer Applications},
This paper describes system for monitoring and fall controlling of infants using tri-axial accelerometer together with ARM7 microcontroller used as a processing system to prevent fall of infants. The system is composed of data acquisition, fall controlling and monitoring and processing unit for analysis. Tri-axial accelerometer is used for human position tracking and fall detection. The system is capable of monitoring infants in real time and the obtained calibrated results are taken into… Expand
