Independent Living with Ultra-Dense Sensing

The world population is rapidly ageing. Therefore, recognizing human activities is important to assist the older adults to stay in their homes for a longer period of time. With recent developments in cheap sensors and networking technologies embedded into a "things" capable of connecting to the Internet, it has become possible to develop a wide range of valuable applications such as remote monitoring and intervention.  Therefore, in this project we will explore the potential for using battery-less, chep and tiny sensors embedded into the environment, ultra dense sensing, for recognizing human activities to support independent living.
