MEMS Acclerometer, GSM, RFmodule, Airbag

Every year, more number of elder people those 65 and older fall. More than 95%of hip fractures in elderly are caused by falling. The elder people who fall and are unable to get up on their own, the period of time spent immobile often affects their health outcome. The principle behind this work is to determine the occurrence of the fall of the elder people using MEMS accelerometer and alert message is send to the caregivers via GSM. The ultimate aim of this project is to attain reliability and accuracy by reducing false alarm. The work also aims at protecting the elder people during fall which is done by opening the airbag. For comfort of elderly, this project senses the light intensity in the room & switch on the light using RF module. The controlling process is done by using Arduino.
