Abstract: The in-house monitoring of elders using intelligent sensors is a very desirable service that has the potential of increasing autonomy and independence while minimizing the risks of living alone. Because of this promise, the e orts of building such systems have been spanning for decades, but there is still a lot of room for improvement. Driven by the recent technology advances in many of the required components, in this paper we present a scalable framework for detailed behavior interpretation of elders. We report on our early deployment experiences and present our current progress in three main components: sensors, middleware and behavior interpretation mechanisms that aim to make e ective mon- itoring and assistive services a reality.
