Project Details


The project aim is to develop a state of the art intelligent care management system to provide care services in specialised care homes and ordinary residential dwellings.

The work involves the design and integration of a hardware platform (initially using off-the-shelf components) to collect and aggregate data from a range of sensors. Collected data can be used for automated control of the living environment and to inform a care services provider to support wellbeing of cared for users. Subsequently, a more cost effective customised hardware platform will be developed based on the initial prototype.

The project is a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) between the University and KG&S Karis Ltd., a developer of care villages for older people, and is funded by the Technology Strategy Board (TSB).
