Abstract:
Abstract— The Personalizable assisTive Ambient monitoring and Lighting (PETAL) Project represents a unique and innovative solution that aims to reduce the cognitive decline among Mild Cognitive Impairment patients through an assisted ambient environment, as well as through the use of neurocognitive stimulation applications. The functioning of the system is based on an online platform named “Rule Editor” that will act as both receptor for the information coming from the environment and transmitter of the information which will eventually materialize through the peripheral devices connected. One of the most important parts of the system is the Human Centric Lighting (the term was coined in 2013 and refers to lighting that induces positive health effects in human beings), which supports the following functions: sleep-wake rhythm, directs attention in a timely manner, supports structure of daily activities and spatial-temporal orientation. The system will also integrate motion and proximity sensors that will continuously monitor the presence of the patient inside the home through a smartwatch worn by the elderly. Using the same smartwatch, the platform can send warnings to different numbers prior set in the case the patient falls. Moreover, regarding the neurocognitive stimulation applications, the patients will perform exercises for maximum an hour, 3 times a week. Using this platform, we can monitor changes that might appear in some particular contexts – aspects regarding the user, time, environment, etc. Thus, the necessary adjustments that should respond to the patient’s requirements could be performed. The platform will allow the caregivers to personalize the way in which the platform as well as the Lighting System and other connected devices and appliances will act using a set of “rules”.
