Elderly Monitoring: An [email protected] 2020 Project

In the spring of 2020, six undergraduate students from diverse countries and engineering fields decided to design together a solution to monitor the elderly. This project was conducted as part of the European Project Semester (EPS) programme at Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto (ISEP). The EM-BRACE solution encompasses two interconnected devices, a base station and a bracelet, and mobile/Web twin applications. The bracelet measures and transmits vital user data (pulse, temperature and falls) to the base station, whereas the base station measures home environment parameters (temperature, humidity and pressure) and sends base station and bracelet data to an Internet of Things (IoT) platform. The data stored in the IoT platform is accessible via the mobile/Web application. Thereby, EM-BRACE monitors the health and environment of the elderly and timely notifies caregivers about problems, contributing to the well-being of the elderly and their families.
