A low power Freescale board with a three-axis capacitive accelerometer and a with Bluetooth connection has been programmed and used in connection with a smartphone for fall detection in Ambient Assisted Living applications. An algorithm for fall detection has been developed using the in-formation of the accelerometers of the board and of the smartphone. The algorithm is part of a user friendly applica-tion for the smartphone developed for signaling the falling event.

Abstract

A low power Freescale board with a three-axis capacitive accelerometer and a with Bluetooth connection has been programmed and used in connection with a smartphone for fall detection in Ambient Assisted Living applications. An algorithm for fall detection has been developed using the in-formation of the accelerometers of the board and of the smartphone. The algorithm is part of a user friendly applica-tion for the smartphone developed for signaling the falling event.
