SIPAS: Exploration in information management systems, position filtering and activity recognition for elderly people

 The feasibility study SIPAS investigated the realizability of an information management system for confidants to preserve or respectively improve the mobility and security of elderly and cared people. Therefore, different methods and algorithms for the positioning and activity recognition especially for the application with elderly people were investigated and adapted. Additionally, the acceptance of elderly people concerning the use of off-the-shelf devices was proofed (regarding safety applications).
