Modeling and implementation of a personalized technological cognitive assistance for the nocturnal ambulation in EHPAD

The sleep disorders of elderly people with neurodegenerative diseases lead to nocturnal wandering behaviors that reduce their quality of life and may have consequences for their safety and for other people living in EHPAD-type residences (accommodation establishments for dependent elderly). This collaborative project between the DOMUS laboratory and the CENTICH, Angers, France, aims to explore technological solutions to help people with nocturnal wandering. The solutions are in harmony with the connected objects already installed at the residence "Les Noisetiers" in Angers, France. Constructed from the data collected in the residence, two sets of scenarios are proposed, one to assist the night wandering inside the residents' rooms, the other when the residents leave their room at night. These scenarios are implemented on middleware and respect the KNX communication protocol used in France.
