Paper Abstract

This paper presents two aordable low-tack system for household biomedical wellness monitoring. The rst system, JIKIMI (pronounced caregiver in Korean), is a remote monitoring system that analyzes the behavior patterns of elders that live alone. JIKIMI is composed of an in-house sensing system, a set of wireless sensor nodes containing a pyroelectric infrared sensor to detect the motion of elders, an emergency button and a magnetic sensor that detects the opening and closing of doors. The system is also equipped with a server system, which is comprised of a database and web server. The server provides the mechanism for web-based monitoring to caregivers. The second system, Reader of Bottle Information (ROBI), is an assistant system which advises the contents of bottles for elders. ROBI is composed of bottles that have connected RFID tags and an advice system, which is composed of a wireless RFID reader, a gateway and a remote database server. The RFID tags are connected to the caps of the bottles are used in conjunction with the advice system These systems have been in use for three years and have proven to be useful for caregivers to provide more ecient and eective care services.
