The aim of the ProHeal project is to demonstrate the usage of self-managing properties inside software systems for elderly care on top of the Internet of Things networks. The consortium studied self-managing properties, principles, algorithms, and performance metrics and applied a subset of them to existing technologies for elderly care.
The consortium validated the results in the pilot ‘Health care for elderly people including support for daily life and e-learning’. The pilot is developed in the participating countries (the Netherlands, Romania and South Korea). An integrated setup of the validation is realized in Romania in a smart environment with secure data storage and processing facilities, integrating the IoT devices and services into a self-managing system.
Almende has taken part in the projects as a member of the Dutch DevLab, in which 12 technological Small and Medium Enterprises (SME's) are united. DevLab implemented innovative self-managing mechanisms inside the MyriaNed wireless sensor networks and various other devices, as well as inside some prototypical implementation of elderly care applications.
