Safety for the elderly

From 2009 to 2011, Vitracom, together with Sikom Software GmbH and in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation (IPA) and the Bruderhaus Diakonie, researched into a system for the automatic recognition of accidents and day-to-day hazards in a home environment. A system of sensors for safe living was realised for this which, in combination with an intelligent analysis system, reliably recognises emergency situations in day-to-day life and takes appropriate measures to get help. The Safe@home product was developed in the course of this project.
