CMU to Research Sensors to Track Elderly

In the Media

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports on work by HCII PhD student Matthew Lee and faculty Anind Dey.

“Somewhere in the city today, researchers from the Quality of Life Technology Center will go to the high-rise residence of an older adult living alone and equip such everyday items as a pillbox, telephone, or sofa with wireless, computerized sensors. Their hope is to use those small sensors to track any decline in the resident’s cognitive or physical abilities long before either normally would be noticed.”
