Pressure sensing tiles (sensor networks)

Collecting information about the state of the building and its occupants can be very beneficial to many fields ranging from structural health monitoring, studying behavioral patterns that aid in designing buildings, and health monitoring of building’s occupants.

Due to the high availability and low cost, we identify the following use-cases:
Specifically designed algorithms can detect accidental falls which can be used in hospitals and elderly homes. In case a fall is detected the system alerts the staff or relatives.
Analyzing collected data can provide more insight into how specific areas of the building are being used and utilized. This information can help optimize the design of future buildings as well as adapting existing ones.
Specific solutions where tracking occupants is needed such as health institutions treating patients with Alzheimer.
