• Propose an algorithm developed from

the selected component for motion


The components were selected

and the algorithm for motion

detection was proposed which

used these components. A

working prototype for motion

detection was built.

This project is to develop an important

component for medical alert-monitoring

systems, which today include GPS satellite

tracking technology and location mapping in

the event of an emergency. The goal of this

project has been to develop an innovative

fall detection system. The following research

phases were performed:

• Evaluate several commercially available

components for developing a fall

detection system

• Evaluate the components for varying

performance parameters

• Rank the components for an optimized

Phenomenon: Motion and Movement
