Type FP7 214986


The main objective of this project is the development and integration of innovative technologies for the
detection of abnormal events (such as falls) or unexpected behaviours that may be related to a health
problem in ageing people. CONFIDENCE will work both outdoors and indoors. The user will wear a few
tags, whose positions are determined using radio technology. The tags' coordinates will be used to
reconstruct the user's posture. This information, together with some environment information, will be
analysed to decide whether to trigger an alarm. The system will be easy to setup and to use and will not
constrain the user's daily life.
