Yes, ICAN(b)E - Active aging in place supported by a caregiver-centered modular low-cost platform

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Aging in place happens when people age in the residence of their choice, usually their homes because it is their preference for living as long as possible. This paper introduces the implementation of a computational platform to support active aging in place with a particular focus on the caregivers and their requirements to accomplish their tasks with engagement and comfort. The platform is supported by IoT, using low-cost technology to increment the platform modularly. It is a modular platform capable of responding to specific needs of seniors aging in place and their caregivers, obtaining data regarding the person under supervision, as well as providing conditions for constant and more effective monitoring, through modules and tools that support decision making and tasks for active living. The paper describes the platform principles and its modular architecture. Preliminary results are presented in the form of an experimental installation scenario.
