Montpellier pilot site is led by the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS)and the Laboratoire d’Informatique, de Robotique et de Microélectronique de Montpellier (LIRMM). The pilot follows 20 people over 65 years with risk of Parkinson and Mild Cognitive Impairment. These people are having an active life, perform normally their activities of daily living and go outside frequently in the city.
The aim of the pilot is to monitor unobtrusively the activities of this population at home and in the city and to detect behavior changes and physical and cognitive declines at early stage. Different technologies are used to monitor the end-users during their daily life such as motion sensors, contact sensors, Kinects and Beacons. Once a behavior change is detected, an adequate intervention follows based on recommendations from doctors.
