Project Summary

The ANGEL (Elderly fall early-warning system based on real-time sensed data) project used the PPP FI-WARE and FI-STAR technology in order to deliver a pervasive and ambient solution towards the real time prevention and early detection of falls. The ANGEL solution is based on:

 a) The real-time capturing of raw data from wearable and/or ambient sensors (bio-signals, accelerometers, visual, sound) 

 b) The real-time filtering, analysis and processing of captured data in order to extract/create higher level events and associate them with semantic information, 

 c) The real time combination with pre-existing patients/elderly persons’ profiles 

 d) The real time complex processing of events’ patterns in order to recognize events that signify increased probability of falling and provide early warnings. 

The project has been successfully completed. 

SILO has been the only implementor of this project.
