Project Title: Design and Implementation of a Situation Aware Android Application for the Safety of the Memory Impaired
Semester: 2 2017
Committe Chair: Dr. Ahmed Mahdy
Committee Member 1: Dr. David Thomas
Project Description: Modern smart phones are well equipped with different sensors along with specialized and innovative hardware that can open the door for a plethora of capabilities. With these additional capabilities offered by smart phones, it has become much easier for every user to act as a data gathering agent. These features provided by the smartphones can be very advantageous in enhancing the living conditions of people. By making use of the context and location awareness of such smart phones, this project aims to develop a situation aware android application that can be used to help with the safety of individuals that may be in need for such support; for example, elderly and the memory impaired. The application will keep track of the location of the user. Based on pre-identified conditions like geo-fencing, time of the day…etc., the application will accordingly notify a set group of individuals with necessary information including the current location. In, additional to these features the application is also intended to assist a person in case of an emergency by capturing the movements of the phone with the help of an accelerometer, which will trigger a specific alert message to selected contacts.
