Abstract [en]

In the world that we already live people are more and more on the run and population ageing significantly raise, new technologies are trying to bring best they can to meet humans’ expectations. Survey’s results, that was done during technology conference with elderly on Blekinge Institute of Technology showed, that no one of them has any kind of help in their home but they would need it. This Master thesis present human health state monitoring to focus on fall detection. Health care systems will not completely stop cases when humans are falling down, but further studying causes can prevent them.In this thesis, integration of sensors for vital parameters measurements, human position and measured data evaluation are presented. This thesis is based on specific technologies compatible with Arduino Uno and Arduino Mega microcontrollers, measure sensors and data exchange between data base, MATLAB/Simulink and web page. Sensors integrated in one common system bring possibility to examine the patient health state and call aid assistance in case of health decline or serious injury risk.System efficiency was based on many series of measurement. First phase a comparison between different filter was carried out to choose one with best performance. Kalman filtering and trim parameter for accelerometer was used to gain satisfying results and the final human fall detection algorithm. Acquired measurement and data evaluation showed that Kalmar filtering allow to reach high performance and give the most reliable results. In the second phase sensor placement was tested. Collected data showed that human fall detection is correctly recognized by system with high accuracy. Designed system as a result allow to measure human health and vital state like: temperature, heartbeat, position and activity. Additionally, system gives online overview possibility with actual health state, historical data and IP camera preview when alarm was raised after bad health condition.
