Smart Optical Sensor (SOS)

OpenXS Smart Optical Sensor (SOS) aims to support Ageing-in- place and delaying the demand for expensive institutional care. Besides the benefits for the care recipient, informal or family caregivers are supported in care through the technology installed as well. Professional caregivers, for instance, can benefit from the increased self-care capabilities of the care recipient. In cases of emergency, i.e., when alarms are activated, caregivers receive an anonymous movie clip to estimate the distance situation and if necessary take action, where the recipients’ privacy is not harmed in any way.
