Abstract

This paper presents an application of a service-based architecture to pervasive monitoring of the elderly using ambient and wearable sensors. The design consideration of the model addresses heterogeneous computing and network resource utilization, allowing inter-operability and supporting dynamic environments to achieve system wide resource optimization. An application of this architecture is presented for assessing the activities of daily living, which is the basis for pervasive sensing for elderly care.
