This project is to develop an important component for medical alert-monitoring systems, which today include GPS satellite tracking technology and location mapping in the event of emergency. The goal of this project has been be to develop an innovative fall detection system. The following research phases were performed:
• Evaluate several commercially available components for developing a fall detection system
• Evaluate the components for varying performance parameters
• Rank the components for an optimized solution
• Propose an algorithm developed from the selected component for motion detection.
The components were selected and the algorithm for motion detection was proposed which used these components. A working prototype for motion detection was built.
