IoT-based Housing Welfare Service

Life Safety Care Solution
for the Aged weak living alone

Wireless biometrics measurement / IR-UWB Radar
Integrated Control System / Intelligent Platform

The purpose of developing the service

  • The number of safety
    accidents and the
    criminal injury incidence
    rate of the elderly who live
    alone has been increased
  • Falling accident rate of
    the elderly who live
    alone has been
  • The number of senior
    citizen who needs the
    professional care of a
    lifestyle manager has
    been increased

The development and the introduction of the IoT and ICT technology
is essential to monitor and check the safety of the elderly
who live alone more efficiently


The elderly housing welfare care service to prevent dying alone is a noncontacting service solution with wireless radar sensor to let a manager
monitor a one person household 24hours checking biometrics such as the location, movement and breathing rate of the elderly
