Daily life assistance for elderly is one of the most promising
and interesting scenarios for advanced technologies in the present and
near future. Improving the quality of life of elderly is also some of the
first priorities in modern countries and societies where the percentage of
elder people is rapidly increasing due mainly to great improvements in
medicine during the last decades. In this paper, we present an overview of
our informationally structured room that supports daily life activities of
elderly. Our environment contains different distributed sensors including
a floor sensing system and several intelligent cabinets. Sensor information
is sent to a centralized management system which processes the data and
makes it available to a service robot which assists the people in the room.
One important restriction in our intelligent environment is to maintain
a small number of sensors to avoid interfering with the daily activities of
people and to reduce as much as possible the invasion of their privacy.
In addition we discuss some experiments using our real environment and
