Medetic - Remote monitoring for elderly people
Participants : Sharham Nourizadeh, Ye-Qiong Song, Jean-Pierre Thomesse.
The topic of this contract is the development of a system for remote monitoring of the health and activities of old people at home. A new CIFRE grant has been obtained in October 2007 for a collaborative research project with MEDETIC in the form of the PhD thesis of Sharam Nourizadeh. The research goal is twofolds. The first one aims to develop QoS mechanisms in wireless sensor networks for supporting the application constraints in terms of communication reliability and response time. The second one consists in developing a modelling technique allowing the proper description and configuration of the whole system (based probably on the component approach and web service technology). Real world test bed installed by Medetic will allow the validation of our solution.
