Sensor Integration and UI Design
BDH is intending to enter the emerging TeleHealth and Assisted living arena. The existing iCase integration of wireless human potential sensors with eye tracking is opening up many commercial opportunities.
The primary purpose of this research is to develop a technology which will address indoor tracking and precise location detection on a mobility scooter for the ageing generation, physically impaired/and medical patients.
This technology will be attainable with the integration of the wheelchair technology with Wi-Fi technology, sensors, RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) and a tablet PC for computing and displaying of current positions (in real-time) with class accuracy and navigational assistance for users within buildings.
The users need mobility to accomplish daily tasks efficiently; and it is essential that a tool that can automatically predict indoor locations, detect movement, record vital health information (if need be), and communicate with relevant authorities when necessary be provided to them.
This is indeed a ground breaking angle to health care, security, navigation efficiency and ease of monitoring for carers.
