The Standalone Intelligent Sensor (SIS) is an inexpensive build-it-yourself system that processes information from a variety of passive wireless sensors to create a timestamped log containing meaningful information and inferences about a person’s in-home activities. The SIS log can be securely accessed over the Internet, providing caregivers and concerned relatives a picture of how competently an elderly person living alone is performing the routine activities of daily life.
The initial release of SIS uses wireless proximity infrared (PIR) motion sensors and wireless door separation sensors to log movements of a person around and in/out of their home. Judicious placement of the PIR sensors provides a compact picture of a person’s activities via the natural association of those activities with areas of the home; e.g. bedroom for sleeping and dressing, bathroom for personal hygiene, kitchen for food preparation and living room for relaxation and socialization.
SIS is completely open source and all documentation and design files are provided at: https://github.com/SISProject
We are interested in expanding SIS beyond the current application to make it into a true open source collaborative platform. Contact us with your comments, thoughts and ideas for additional applications at: SISProject@shrimpware.com.
