Online Fall Detection using Recurrent Neural Networks

  title={Online Fall Detection using Recurrent Neural Networks},
  author={Mirto Musci and Daniele De Martini and Nicola Blago and Tullio Facchinetti and Marco Piastra},
Unintentional falls can cause severe injuries and even death, especially if no immediate assistance is given. The aim of Fall Detection Systems (FDSs) is to detect an occurring fall. This information can be used to trigger the necessary assistance in case of injury. This can be done by using either ambient-based sensors, e.g. cameras, or wearable devices. The aim of this work is to study the technical aspects of FDSs based on wearable devices and artificial intelligence techniques, in… CONTINUE READING
