Abstract

Number of elderly people who live alone or elderly only couples are going to increase as ratio of elderly people increase in Japan as same as the other developed countries. They often have trouble with their health which needs care by someone. However most of their families live away from them. In this study we tried to develop remote monitoring system by measurement of fixture movement at home to observe the elderly people's daily behavior for safety. Through eight days experiment at rural area in Nagano, Japan, the acceleration measurement system recorded the door movement to observe the inhabitant's characteristics. Extracted characteristics from the results has shown the inhabitant's behavior which can be used for criteria of their activities. Elderly people who live alone or elderly only couples will be able to be monitored their safety by this automatic confirming system without violation of the inhabitant's privacy.
