Vitalzeichen

The advances in development of pervasive technologies nowadays enable a seamless integration of smart health monitoring into everyday life. Small devices of roughly the size of a watch which are capable to detect critical health conditions of the person wearing it and to communicate this to a doctor or nurse in charge over a radio interface literally untie the bearer from static monitoring entities. Especially the elderly or patients still in an unstable health condition can thus benefit from a greater degree of freedom without trading this freedom for safety.

In cooperation with the SMT Potsdam GmbH and the Spicher GmbH this project aims at developing a prototype system that enables low-cost monitoring and tracking integrated into standard building automation.
