Chronic diseases are costly for global health systems and society in general. Many of the associated health problems can be prevented by adherence to healthy lifestyle. This book undertakes the design and evaluation of a behaviour analysis and reminder delivery framework, referred as iMessenger, which comprises four topics: activity classification, location detection, context management, and reminder delivery. The activity classification module extracted the activity postures using an accelerometer embedded in a belt-worn smart phone. The location detection module localized tagged subjects based on RFID technologies. Ontological modeling and reasoning were utilized to integrate heterogeneous contexts, and to infer users' current activity and situations. The inference results were generated into situation-aware reminders. iMessenger has the potential to encourage people to adopt a healthier lifestyle for enhanced well-being and can therefore potentially reduce the burden of healthcare. This book should be useful to professionals in healthcare and smart home fields, or anyone else who may be interested in these research areas.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

With an increasing population of elderly people the number of falls and fall-related injuries is on the rise. This will cause changes for future health care systems, and both fall detection and fall prevention will pose a major challenge. Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) is a research area in which concepts and information systems for assisting elderly individuals are developed. Fall detection, as an important discipline of AAL, investigates a broad range of approaches including wearable devices. With their growing popularity, mobile devices with their embedded motion sensors, their software capabilities and cost-efficiency are well-suited for fall detection. A test framework for collecting and analyzing data regarding fall detection is presented. The framework consists of a RESTful Web service, a relational database and a Web-based back end. It offers an open interface to support a variety of devices. The system architecture is based on the state-of-the-art theoretical background of AAL and on the evaluation of an existing software. In order to test the framework, a mobile device client recording accelerometer and gyroscope sensor data is implemented on the iOS platform.

Microcontrollers are embedded into larger systems to provide benefits such as better performance, more features, better efficiency, lower costs and better dependability. This textbook introduces students to creating microcontroller-based embedded systems featuring an ARM Cortex-M CPU core. Chapter 1 introduces students to the concepts of MCU-based embedded systems, and how they differ from general-purpose computers. It then introduces the ARM Cortex-M0+ CPU, the Kinetis KL25Z MCU, and the low cost FRDM-KL25Z MCU development board. Chapter 2 presents the general purpose I/O peripheral to provide an early, hands-on experience with reading switches and lighting LEDs using C code. It also introduces the CMSIS hardware abstraction layer, which simplifies software access to peripherals. Chapter 3 introduces multitasking on the CPU, with the goals of improving responsiveness and software modularity while reducing CPU overhead. The interplay of interrupts, peripherals and schedulers (both cooperative and preemptive) is examined. Chapter 4 presents the ARM Cortex-M0+ processor core, including organization, registers, memory, and instruction set. It then discusses interrupts and exceptions, including CPU response and hardware configuration. Designing software for a system with interrupts is discussed, including program design (including partitioning work), interrupt configuration, writing handlers in C, and sharing data safely given preemption. Chapter 5 first gives an overview of tool-chain which translates a program from C source code to executable object code. It then shows side-by-side the source code and the object code the tool-chain has generated to implement it. Topics covered include functions, arguments, return values, activation records, exception handlers, control flow constructs for loops and selection, memory allocation and use, and accessing data in memory. Chapter 6 presents analog interfacing, starting with theory and ending with practical implementations. Quantization and sampling are presented as a foundation for digital to analog conversion, and analog to digital conversion. The DAC, ADC and analog comparator peripherals are presented and used. Chapter 7 presents timer peripherals and their use for generating a periodic interrupt or a pulse-width modulated signal, or for measuring elapsed time or a signal's frequency. Watchdog timers, used to detect and reset an out-of-control program, are also discussed. The SysTick, PIT, TPM and COP timers are examined. Chapter 8 discusses serial communications, starting with the fundamentals of data serialization, framing, error detection, media access control and addressing. Software queues are introduced to show how to buffer data between communication ISRs and other parts of the program. Three protocols and their supporting peripherals are investigated next: SPI, asynchronous serial (UART) and I2C. UART communication is demonstrated using the FRDM-KL25Z's debug MCU as a serial port bridge over USB to the PC. I2C communication is demonstrated using the FRDM-KL25Z's built-in 3 axis accelerometer with I2C interface. Chapter 9 introduces the direct memory access peripheral and its ability to transfer data autonomously, offloading work from the CPU and offering dramatically improved performance. Examples include using DMA for bulk data copying, and for DAC-based analog waveform generation with precise timing. An appendix covers how to measure the power and energy use on the FRDM-KL25Z board, including disconnecting the debug MCU to reduce power. Energy measurement using an ultracapacitor is also presented. For use in ECE, EE, and CS departments.
