Abstract

Smart home environment is expected to meet the requirements, essentially for the aging population, to support the concept of 'aging in place', to provide reliable care and to ensure safety and proper diagnosis by keeping track of daily living, medical condition of the resident and providing feedback to the caregiver. In order to meet these requirements, smart home of today should support a number of functionalities. One such functionality of a smart home environment is the location detection. In this work, we propose a voice based location detection system which can be integrated in a smart home environment. Our location detection system uses Amazon Echo as the voice interface and HC-SR04 ultrasonic sensor to detect location of specific patients. The proposed location detection will be suitable for large scale application where we may need to keep track of multiple patients. Moreover, the inclusion of voice enabled feature to this system will reduce the burden of learning curve of new technologies on family and caregivers thereby improving the quality of life.
