Abstract

The main purpose of this paper is to introduce the European Project entitled “A Guardian Angel For The Extended Home Environment” (GUARANTEE) which is supported by the Information Technology for European Advancement (ITEA2). The goal of GUARANTEE is to research software products and services that provide personal safety in the residential environment. These products and services provide direct support and advice to people in unsafe situations, or they connect people and enable the support of others. The project will investigate the consumer needs and the commercial opportunity for this type of product. Further, the project will develop the software components and personal safety services as well as the system and software architecture. GUARANTEE will develop 3 demonstrators: for children’s safety, elderly safety, and home security. The demonstrators integrate components for sensing, decision making, and alerting of users. The demonstrators comprise both an in-home and networked system for commercial or community services.
