・・Our system can monitor every living space in a private home including bathrooms even in the dark.
・Our system does not require care-receivers’ voluntary actions like pushing buttons for help or any wearable or portable devices.
・Our system recognizes a fall and a prolonged crouching position as abnormal, detects care-receivers going out, and send an alarm to caregivers immediately.
・Our monitoring system uses 3D sensor modules for the protection of privacy instead of conventional 2D imaging cameras, which capture and show a fine texture of care-receivers.
・Our system also uses near-infrared light, which enables it to perform monitoring even in the dark.
・Our system monitors the care-receiver by using 3D sensors and detects abnormalities automatically based on information from the sensors. It does not require the care-receiver to keep a device on for being monitored.
