Abstract

Consequences of advancing in years include declining health and mobility, leading to increased risk of injury due to accidents, especially at home. People currently use very basic passive or reactive methods concerning accidents such as panic or watch-strap buttons. More intelligent and proactive safety products leveraging the recent advances in pervasive computing, services and communication are not yet part of the home. The objective of this research is to introduce active safety products on the example of vacuum cleaner that are functionally enhanced by networked services towards personal safety and comfort.
