Fall is one of the serious health issues among elderly population; which may lead to critical injuries like hip fractures and may even be fatal. Current Personal Emergency Respond System (PERS) often employ the use of a manual emergency button. Hence, elderly will not be able to seek for help when the user is unconscious. The project “Smart Fall Detection and Notification System (e-SAFE)” is developed to effectively detect falls in real-time. The system consists of an accelerometer sensor, microcontroller, ZigBee transceiver module and Global System for Mobile communications (GSM) device. ZigBee will be used to establish the wireless home network environment that is consisted of sensors and a main controller. An algorithm that is able to detect fall accurately is also developed. Once a fall has been detected, predefined contacts will receive a notification message in the forms of SMS and email. This system will provide a path toward independent living for the elderly while keeping them save.
