Ambient Assisted Living: 5. AAL-Kongress 2012 Berlin, by Gee Fung Sit, Chenbin Shen, Holger Storf, Cristian Hofmann

By Gee Fung Sit, Chenbin Shen, Holger Storf, Cristian Hofmann (auth.), Reiner Wichert, Birgid Eberhardt (eds.)

In this booklet, major authors within the box talk about improvement of Ambient Assisted dwelling. The contributions were selected and invited on the fifth AAL congress, Berlin. It provides new technological advancements which help the autonomy and independence of people with distinctive wishes. because the technological innovation increases additionally social concerns, the publication addresses micro and macro not pricey elements of assistive structures and places an extra emphasis at the moral and felony dialogue. The presentation is supported via genuine international examples and applications.

Genetic Engineering: Principles and Methods

Genetic Engineering, quantity 24 comprises discussions of up to date and appropriate issues in genetics, together with: -Gene silencing: ideas and functions, -Integrins and the myocardium, -Plant virus gene vectors: biotechnology and purposes in agriculture and drugs, -Novel ways to controlling transcription, -Use of DNA polymorphisms in genetic mapping, -Application of FLP/FRT site-specific DNA recombination approach in vegetation.

ICU Protocols: A stepwise approach

The e-book describes step-wise administration of medical emergencies noticeable on a daily basis in extensive care devices (ICUs. As a realistic advisor, clinicians can consult with it on a daily foundation in the course of their paintings hours, or whereas in transit to replace their wisdom. certain readers are intensivists, serious care experts, and citizens excited about the care of sufferers admitted in ICUs.

Desert Truffles: Phylogeny, Physiology, Distribution and Domestication

Wilderness brownies are present in each recognized desolate tract, without reference to the habitat – cool or sizzling, loamy or acidic, sandy or heavy soil – the single universal appears to be like a constrained offer of water. not like ‘true’ tarts, desolate tract brownies have advanced through the years in numerous households, as a rule in the order Pezizales.

Sample text

Only a few parameters for robust accident detection will be sent to an overall evaluation unit. For robust accident detection, only a few parameters will be sent to a supervisory master computer which is installed in the apartment. Apart from that no other image data is required for accident detection. Only a phone-based alarm signal serves as an interface between emergency calls in the apartment and the outside. Fig. 2. Principle of accident detection system Automatic Recognition of Emergencies with the Help of Optical and Acoustic Sensors 37 5 Evaluation Principle of Accident Detection The following section describes the evaluation algorithm of the sensor data, the calculated parameters for accident detection, the criteria according to which automatic alerting takes place and the avoidance of false alarms.

Furthermore, the evaluation software was extended in such a way that disappearance of a person in the room (not near doors) has been evaluated as a dangerous inactivity. A control call will be initiated then. Alltogether, only one false alarm was sent off after the speech recognition misinterpreted the reply of the test person. In real life, this would only have caused an unnecessary call to the first person in the contact list. 6 Summary and Outlook This paper describes a novel sensor-based security system for the automatic detection of accidents which is being developed in the project sens@home.
