Section: Application Domains

Aided Communication and Monitoring

A foreseen application aims at improving the autonomy of elderly or disabled people, and fit with smartroom applications. In a first step, source separation techniques could be tuned and should help for locating and monitoring people through the detection of sound events inside apartments. In a longer perspective, adapting speech recognition technologies to the voice of elderly people should also be useful for such applications, but this requires the recording of adequate databases. Sound monitoring in other application fields (security, environmental monitoring) could also be envisaged.
